Resurfacing Of Main Road In Poole

Essential resurfacing works are being carried out to a busy main road in Poole during half term week.

Works to resurface a worn out section of Bournemouth Road, between the Church Road signal junction and Courtenay Road, will begin on Wednesday 29 October. The works costing £90,000 will last for approximately three days.

To minimise disruption to local residents and road users, the works will be undertaken outside of peak hours, between 9.30am and 4pm. Minor works will initially take place on site on Monday and Tuesday which will have no impact on traffic. However, the signals at the Church Road junction will be turned off on Wednesday and Thursday. During these two days all right turns at this junction will be temporarily restricted and traffic will also be unable to go straight ahead over the junction from Springfield Road to the one way section of Church Road. However at the end of each day the signal junction will be back in operation and all right turns will be available for motorists to use as normal. Temporary traffic signals will be in operation on Bournemouth Road from 9.30am to 4pm on each day the works are progressing.

All local businesses will be open as normal during these works and bus services and pedestrian access will remain unaffected.

Councillor Ian Potter, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Borough of Poole, said: “As Bournemouth Road is such a busy road we have planned for the works to take place during half term, as there is generally 15% less traffic on the roads during this period.

“We recognise that the works will cause some unavoidable disruption to road users and would ask motorists to allow extra time for their journeys. We would like to thank everyone for their patience, while these improvements are carried out.

“These works will complete £228,000 worth of major improvements which have been carried out in and around Bournemouth Road over the last year."
