Broadwey Residents Urged To Have Their Say Today On Traffic Calming Plans


8:43am 14th November 2014

People living on Broadwey in Weymouth are being asked what they think about plans to slow down traffic in the area.

Engineers have been designing options for Dorchester Road that will help create more on-road parking for residents between Littlemoor Road junction and Prospect Place.

The project team will be available to answer questions and discuss the proposals at two events today and tomorrow:

Upwey & Broadwey Memorial Hall – Friday 14 November, 2pm - 6.30pm

The Royal Standard Pub - Saturday 15 November, 10am - 3pm

Cllr Mark Tewkesbury, county council ward member for Broadwey, said: "This section of Dorchester Road, between Littlemoor Road junction and Prospect Place, has only had minor amendments to it since becoming a quieter local route following the opening of the relief road.

"I'd urge residents to take the opportunity to comment on the plans - for or against - as this is your road and you have the local knowledge about how it is now used."

After the Weymouth Relief Road was completed, work has been carried out on seven sections of Dorchester Road to help reduce traffic on the road to try and create a quieter local road.

Plans are available to view online at:
