THREE vehicles were involved in a non-injury collision on Gravel Hill in Wimborne this afternoon.

A call was made to Dorset Police at 1.12pm with reports of the incident at the junction with Arrowsmith Road.

It involved a white BMW 520 registered to a company from Birmingham, a red Fiat Sedici Eleganza registered to a man from Broadstone, and white Ford Transit van registered to a company from Salisbury.

Recovery vehicles were on scene at 3.22pm and the road was set to be re-opened by officers from Dorset Police.

Earlier today temporary traffic signals returned to Gravel Hill after the discovery of further ground movement where a major water leak was repaired last week.  

Borough of Poole has warned that the work will continue through tonight’s rush hour and is advising motorists to avoid the area if possible.

The traffic lights at Gravel Hill are a nightmare with the filter system. I usually keep to the left side going straight on but you always find some idiot who cuts you up trying to get in front of you instead of filtering behind you......

so what is the right hand lane for, other than going straight on, where there is no right turn and why do the road markings past the junctions tell people on the left to move to the right? if you use that junction regularly you really should have worked that out by now - it hasn't changed for years
