DCC Highways have recently unveiled their latest plans for Coombe junction. 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, and work should begin October. Councillors enthusiastically approved the plans at the August Council meeting, and thanked DCC for listening to parishioners’ views and concerns, and taking them into account.
