17% Vote for One Way System Through Dorchester

Dorchester Town Centre

8:16am 20th February 2014

Radical plans to change the way traffic flows through Dorchester are being reconsidered after a public consultation.

The County Council will be asked next week to look at our suggestions on how to deal with congestion in High West and High East Street, which is causing unacceptable levels of air pollution.

Nearly 600 people responded to the consultation before Christmas - only 17% backed how the council planned to do it, with a one way system for part of High West and High East Street.

There was concern from residents this would push the traffic slow into residential areas.

The County Council's Cabinet will meet on the 26th February.

They'll look at three possible options.  That could be developing the  scheme with significant changes, undertaking a re-assessment of the project objectives and how they might be achieved or to abandon the project.

If the County Council decides to go ahead the budget, which is currently set at £4.85M will have to increase - due to delays and extra costs incurred.
