Four new roundabouts are being built as part of the road, two in the Littlemoor area and two at the southern end of the scheme near Morrison’s. Local schoolchildren, the relief road construction team and Dorset County Council staff submitted over 70 names for consideration. Now an online poll at will give local people a chance to choose their favourite names from a shortlist for each roundabout.
Suggestions were scored by a judging panel against three criteria – relevance, originality and impact, with the top names now being put forward to the public vote.
The closing date for votes is midnight on Monday 23 August.
