A ROUTINE inspection of the Welcome to Bournemouth sign on the A338 Spur Road revealed no problems, Bournemouth council has confirmed.

A section of the Spur Road was reduced to one lane in both directions on Monday evening, as council engineers carried out a maintenance inspection.

The inspection started at 7pm and was finished by 12.30am. A Bournemouth council spokesman said that the inspection was simply to check everything was in order following the sign’s installation last August.
