Another milestone in the Weymouth Relief Road project will be reached on Friday (5 August), with the opening of the new Bincombe junction and completion of cycleway routes.
Vehicles from Upwey, Broadwey and Bincombe will be able to join northbound traffic to Dorchester, and southbound traffic can leave the relief road to join Dorchester Road and Bincombe Lane.
With the opening of the junction, the free shuttle service provided by the county council from Upwey to link up with bus services from Littlemoor will finish on Friday.
The remaining section of the Weymouth to Dorchester cycleway – between Bincombe and the Ridgeway bridge – will open on the same day.
The Weymouth Relief Road project is now almost complete. Remaining works along Littlemoor Road should be finished by mid-September, with grass seeding to be carried out in the autumn followed by shrub planting in December and January.
