Cycleway works between Ridgeway and Dorchester are going well, as you can see we’re laying the first layer of the surface at the moment and we have another two to three weeks of work to go.
In some areas we can work from the road verge, but other areas don’t have as much room – particularly near Stadium Roundabout. This means we have to use a lane closure to do the work, and we appreciate how patient and understanding drivers have been so far about the ongoing traffic management.
The speed limit in this area is now 40mph. This limit is in place for the safety of motorists and also for our workforce, who are working very close to live traffic.
