Dorchester Road consultation


Dorchester Road northbound near Wey Valley (large version)

Landscape designs for Dorchester Road are going on display at Redlands Community Sports Hub from Monday 11 October to Saturday 16 October.

The county council is looking at environmental improvements for Dorchester Road, as there will be a significant reduction in traffic on it when the relief road is finished, and want to hear what residents think of ideas so far.

The project team will be available to answer questions and discuss the proposals at the following times:

  • Tuesday 12 October               1pm to 7pm
  • Thursday 14 October             9am to midday
  • Saturday 16 October              9am to 1pm

There will also be a staffed public exhibition at the St Francis of Assisi Church Hall, Littlemoor, on Monday 18 October from 1pm to 7pm.

    Excellent. It’s what the Relief Road is all about.
    Equally bypassed will be the A353 south of Chalbury Roundabout, but the Weymouth Transport Package failed to recognise this. All main road traffic from the East will be directed via the upgraded Littlemoor Road.
    The Esplanade (north) and King Street could have had major enhancements, but instead there will be a forest of unnecessary traffic signals.
    What a tragic missed opportunity.

    Will there be landscaping improvements to Littlemoor road as well?

    • Weymouth Relief Road Says:

      Hi Peter,

      As part of the Dorchester Road proposals we propose changes to the Littlemoor lights junction (looking at feasibility of turning this into a T-junction) and at the Littlemoor railway bridge by the train station (looking at putting up priority signs for section of road under bridge).

      Please come along next week if you can and have a look and the plans so far, and let us know what you think.

    Sounds a really great idea! Makes us feel that the relief road is finally going to happen (we’ve been waiting nearly 40years) and change our lives significantly for the better. We hope that some thought will also have been given to possible ways and means to discourage motorists from using the B3159 from Bridport as a short cut to Weymouth, though landscaping the Dorchester Road might act as a deterrent if it slows traffic down sufficiently.
