New Road Planned To Ease School Traffic Congestion

Thomas Hardye School Field 1

A local developer is reassuring Dorchester parents plans to ease traffic problems around Thomas Hardye School won't impact entirely on school's playing fields.

School Governors are talking to Zero C about ways to ease major congestion caused by buses on the school run.

They've come up with a proposal to build a link road, which would run from Maiden Castle Road down the side of the school's playing fields up to the school itself.

The road would also carry with it a strip of housing.

The discussions are ongoing with representatives from the County Council, the District Council, The Town Council and the Duchy of Cornwall.

ZeroC Managing Director Kim Slowe said "People perhaps haven't got all the facts which is always unfortunate but it will not impact at all on the playing field area. The road would run along a strip of grass that is currently not being used."

There's an open evening at the school on 12th November from 5.15pm to 8pm where you can find out more about the plans.
