Our schemes and network
TCF’s new sustainable transport network - what’s happening!
Transforming Travel’s TCF programme encompasses a huge range of projects and schemes, from wayfinding installations and bike hire to new cycle and walking routes and the launch of a new travel app.
A major part of the multi-million-pound TCF investment is funding a series of exciting cycling, walking and bus improvements all aimed at offering eco-friendly, safe, healthy and quick journeys to work, education and leisure.
Work currently underway
Six sustainable transport routes are planned:
Site investigation work
You may notice minor works taking place in the vicinity of the proposed sustainable travel routes including vegetation clearance and drainage, ground and utility investigations. This is all part of our exploratory site works; the findings are being used to inform the designs for the individual routes.
Work will typically last a maximum of one day per location and will have little, if any impact on the public.
- Ringwood Road (Bear Cross roundabout / Millhams Road)
Vegetation clearance is taking place on Ringwood Road (A348) between Bear Cross roundabout and Millhams Road as part of investigation work to inform design plans for TCF’s proposed sustainable travel route running to and from Poole town centre, Ferndown and Wimborne.
Work includes removal of vegetation, rubbish and cut back of trees from the road, verge and pavement.
Works started on Monday 22nd February and will take up to 2 weeks to complete.

Other TCF programme initiatives
The Beryl Bike rental service has been expanded to cover the Christchurch area. 275 new Beryl Bikes are available to hire at 50 new Beryl Bays in the town and can be hired at a reasonable cost via the free to download Beryl app.
Trip end facilities for schools
Schools and colleges across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are being invited to apply for grants of up to £20,000 to spend on new facilities that encourage active and sustainable travel. These could include facilities such as lockable bike stores, showers, lockers, bike repair stands, clothes drying facilities and electric bike charging points.
New Wayfinding Totems to encourage residents and visitors to walk and cycle are to be installed across the south east Dorset city region as part of the Transforming Cities Fund programme. The distinctive Wayfinding Totems will be installed around the conurbation and along all the sustainable routes. They will provide easy to read maps clearly showing routes to Stations, Hospitals, car-parks, retail centres, parks, tourist attractions and other places of interest.
