Poole: Final Phase Of Major Road Project Starts
The final phase of works to improve pedestrian, cycling and traffic facilities on a busy main road in Poole has started.
Major improvement works have been carried out to the central area of Ashley Road, between Jubilee Road and Albert Road, since September. The works were temporarily stopped in the busy run up to Christmas but the site team has now returned to complete the works.
The works are part of a wider #1 million improvement programme for Ashley Road and will include separate parking and bus lay-bys, two new bus stops and bus stop shelters, a new upgraded signal controlled pedestrian crossing and improvements to the local environment.
Councillor Ian Potter said: ``The improvements are part of the Three Towns Travel project which aims to promote sustainable travel across the conurbation of Poole, Bournemouth, and Christchurch along the busy A35 corridor.
``Schemes are designed to encourage people to choose more environmentally friendly forms of travel. Relying less on the car will help reduce congestion on roads, improve air quality, support the local economy and make public spaces more attractive.
``We would like to thank drivers in advance for their patience and understanding while these improvements are carried out.''
It is anticipated that the works will be completed by the end of March.
