Work to Overhaul Junction Underway in Weymouth

7:39am 18th March 2013

Work starts today (Monday 18th March) to turn a busy junction into a mini roundabout in Weymouth.

The improvements at Overcombe Corner, where the Preston Road junction with Bowleaze Coveway, are expected to take ten weeks.

Councillors say the works are in response to public desire to  improve pedestrian and cycling access while reducing driving speeds at the junction.

During a consultation with residents last September, 81% of those who responded wanted to see improvements there with the mini roundabout option the most popular.

Stop/go boards will be in use outside of peak hours this week.
