With Tuckon Bridge closed this week, motorists have been hit with massive queues.
Large queues of traffic hit the both sides of the bridge on Tuesday and Wednesday following the start of the closure to replace the road surface.
Shops in Tuckton also suffered with traders reporting a drop in footfall, not helped by motorists queuing up and down the High Street.
Ian Kalra, transportation services manager at Bournemouth council, said, “These are essential maintenance works to a heavily used structure which is over 100 years old. I would like to reassure the travelling public that we have done all we can to programme these works in such a manner as to minimise disruption to traffic."
Jenni Wilkinson, head of marketing, Yellow Buses, told the Bournemouth Echo, “Tuckton Bridge is one of our arterial routes and, inevitably, there has been a significant knock-on effect to our services caused by its temporary closure."
