Over the first three months of 2010, all of the structures for the Weymouth Relief Road will start to take shape and most will be completed by May.
This includes a pedestrian underpass by Manor Roundabout and an underpass beneath the new road into Two Mile Coppice, as well as all the bridges for the scheme.
The footpath over Littlemoor bridge will be open shortly, and this will give a good view of the construction of the Southdown Ridge bridge.
There will also be work over the winter on many of the bridleways for the scheme and on the cycleway from Ridgeway to Dorchester.
As soon as weather conditions become reasonably dry, the main earthworks for the road construction will restart, in preparation for starting to surface the road during the summer.
