The welcome to Weymouth ‘pineapples’ have been relocated as a gateway to the park and ride site.
Due to the sensitive nature of the northern part of the scheme, where the road design has had to be carefully managed, it has been deemed that it is no longer appropriate for the pineapples to be sited in that area.
There were also issues with sight lines, and the need for crash barriers, if placed near the main carriageway.
The relief road is also largely in West Dorset, so suitable sites on the section of road in the borough were scarce.
