Should you observe any problems with roadworks like abandoned roadworks signs, failed reinstatements, inactivity on site, or concerning practises by a workforce, then you should contact us.

Comments, enquiries and complaints

Dorset Council as Highway Authority, are not directly responsible for the actions of those working on the highway. We endeavour to ensure works happen with the least possible disruption and with safety of all road users at the heart everything we do, but we cannot control the actions of others all the time.

Most work should have at least one information board on site showing who is responsible for the activity.

Comments, enquiries and complaints about works and activities should be directed to the organisation carrying out the works. With some exceptions, most of the work on Dorset's roads are carried out by the following organisations:
