Work update


Bincombe works progress June 2011 (large version)

The Mount Pleasant Park and Ride is continuing to take shape, work is ongoing to connect the electricity supply to power the lighting and park and ride building.

It is hoped the site will be open in July. Elsewhere in the area, the Mercery link road and Harriers’ Roundabout are nearly complete and will be open in July.

The new Littlemoor Road now has traffic running along most of it and work is underway to complete the tie-ins with the side roads and the shared footway/cycleways in the area. This work should be finished by the end of August.

The remaining section of the Weymouth to Dorchester cycleway – between Bincombe and the Ridgeway bridge – is still being built and should be open in early August.

The end arch sections for the Bincombe underbridge are now in place and the edge beams are being constructed; work is continuing to realign the Dorchester Road connection with Bincombe Lane, which passes under the new road.

The Bincombe junction is currently programmed to be fully open in mid August.

    Is there a date yet for the completion of the access roads between Upwey and the Ridgeway and do we have information about the route the buses will take when the access roads are open?

      Hi Nigel,

      The access roads will be open in August when the Bincombe junction is finished.

      As far as we know, the Dorchester bus route will use Dorchester Road and then join the relief road at the new Bincombe junction.

      However, as the route is run by commercial companies, you may wish to check with the bus operator.
