Final Aerial Pictures

November 10, 2011

The final set of aerial images for the Weymouth Relief Road is now available on our Flickr account.

The image above is looking west along the completed Littlemoor Road.

Over the next few months we will be carrying out remedial works and completing fencing and landscaping across the scheme.

As this will mark completion of construction of the relief road, we will no longer be regularly updating this blog. 

We hope you have found it informative and interesting.   Thanks for all your comments and feedback.  

For transport and travel news and advice in Weymouth and Portland, keep an eye on the Dorset Newsroom.

All questions and enquiries about the relief road can still be directed to Dorset Highways:

This week work will be taking place to surface the old section of Littlemoor Road near St Andrew’s Primary School and finish the pedestrian crossing tables.

The work is being carried out during half term to minimise disruption to the school.

There will be short periods of time this week where traffic control is required on Littlemoor Road to complete road lining.

Work on the road will be finished tomorrow, however for safety reasons the junction will not reopen to traffic until Saturday afternoon so that the footways can be completed.

Canberra Crescent update

October 7, 2011

The closure of Canberra Crescent is being extended to Friday 14 October.

Work has been progressing well this week, however a lot of services have been found in the area which has caused some delays.

The county council hopes that the work will be completed by the end of next week.

The closure is required for safe construction of the junction tie-in to the new Littlemoor Road.

Apologies for any inconvenience and disruption caused.

Canberra Crescent closure

October 4, 2011

The junction of Canberra Crescent and Littlemoor Road in Weymouth closed from yesterday morning (Monday 3 October 2011) to enable Dorset County Council to complete the junction tie-in to the new Littlemoor Road.

The county council hopes that the work will be completed this week so that the junction will be open for the weekend.

Littlemoor Road update

September 20, 2011

The works along Littlemoor Road have been progressing well. Works of this nature are always fiddly and complex as you have to maintain access and tie into the existing layout.

A substantial amount of kerbing and surfacing has been completed. In addition, drainage and ducting for electric supplies to lighting and signing has been put in.

Works still to be complete include:

  • The link to Louviers Road (east), which is currently being carried out under temporary traffic lights
  • The link to Canberra Crescent
  • The remaining sections of footway/cycleway
  • Tidying up the completed links to accesses and side roads

The works are due to be completed towards the middle of October, although there will be some remedial works to complete in the following months.
