Final Aerial Pictures

November 10, 2011 by

The final set of aerial images for the Weymouth Relief Road is now available on our Flickr account.

The image above is looking west along the completed Littlemoor Road.

Over the next few months we will be carrying out remedial works and completing fencing and landscaping across the scheme.

As this will mark completion of construction of the relief road, we will no longer be regularly updating this blog. 

We hope you have found it informative and interesting.   Thanks for all your comments and feedback.  

For transport and travel news and advice in Weymouth and Portland, keep an eye on the Dorset Newsroom.

All questions and enquiries about the relief road can still be directed to Dorset Highways:
