New pedestrian/cycle crossing at Coombe; work postponed.

DCC Highways have just announced that, having previously said they would be starting the work in October, it is now postponed until the next financial year. We will let you know when we have a new start date.

The new layout will include separate entrance and exit lanes, with a small island in between. There will be a pedestrian ‘island’ on the West (Wareham) side of the junction, which will make crossing safer for those on foot and with a cycle. The new layout will cost c. £330,000 to build.
