You can have your say on final plans for an improved, traffic-free walking and cycling route between Weymouth and Portland.
The proposals, which look to widen the entire length of the Portland Beach Road cycleway, will be on display at Portland's Tescos this weekend (27th & 28th July).
Work began to improve the link between the two places back in 2011.
The latest improvements will be funded by the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
The first section of cycleway improvements between Ferry Bridge and the Chesil Beach Visitor Centre was funded by Sustrans and built in 2011. The second phase from the visitor centre to Hamm Beach Road roundabout was built earlier this year. The third and final phase from Hamm Beach Road to Victoria Square, Fortuneswell is due to be completed by the end of March 2014, with construction expected early in the new year.
There'll also be a consultation evening held by Dorset County Council on the 31st July at the Boat That Rocks on Portland.
