More complete details were issued by leaflet ‘Ironman 70.3 Weymouth – Route & Access Overview’ delivered to Okeford Fitzpaine addresses during the first week of August.
Note: Dorset Council later issued a statement.
“The final decision on whether Dorset Council can put road closures in place for IRONMAN’s event on 20 September has not been made yet.
The multi-agency Safety Advisory Group meets next week to discuss IRONMAN’s plans. The views of this group will be used to inform Dorset Council’s decision concerning road closures.”
The Safety Advisory Group includes representatives from Dorset Council, Public Health Dorset, Dorset Police, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire Service, South Western Ambulance Service and Weymouth Town Council.
