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.
A traffic road closure will be in operation from 27 September to 15 October on Glenferness Avenue between East Avenue and Elgin Road while site investigation works take place as part of preparatory work for proposed sustainable travel improvements planned in this area.
Pedestrian and cyclist access is unaffected.
There is further information about the proposals.

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
21 schools in the BCP Council region will be benefiting from a total of over £214,000 worth of grants (up to £20,000 each) to help them pay for the installation of new or improved ‘end-of-trip’ facilities which encourage healthy and eco-friendly journeys to school.
The grants have been awarded for projects to install end of journey facilities for students and staff, who cycle, walk or scoot to school including lockable bike and scooter 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 being 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 the sustainable routes. 20 have been installed across Poole town centre with the next tranche is due to be installed in Christchurch town centre this autumn. 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.
