Works progress

February 18, 2011

Despite some heavy showers good progress has been made on site during the last couple of weeks. The lighting at the Jurassic Roundabout and Bincombe Bumps roundabout is nearing completion and is being tested. Also the top soiling of the areas around the roundabouts is well advanced.

Most of the signs around the roundabout have been erected including the direction signs with the publicly chosen roundabout names.

Speed

June 16, 2010

Speed limit map (large version)

A few people have asked about what the speed limit on the new road will be.

South to north, the speed limits are:

  • Southern roundabouts – 30mph
  • Manor Roundabout to Littlemoor – 50mph

The slower speed limit on the southern section of road reduced the amount of land needed and also has fewer environmental impacts. Slower vehicles will also produce less noise.

  • Littlemoor roundabouts – 40mph
  • Littlemoor to Dorchester – 60mph

Littlemoor Road west of the garden centre will be 40mph, other sections of Littlemoor Road will remain 30mph.

The main relief road will not be lit, but the new Littlemoor Road and the roundabout junctions will have lighting.
