Holdenhurst Road - Ashley Road

A series of walking and cycling improvements are planned between Holdenhurst Road and Ashley Road that will form part of a sustainable travel route running between Bournemouth Railway Station to/from Jumpers Common.

About the plans

Following review of the responses received on the initial proposals, we have developed our designs along Ashley Road and its adjoining streets. The proposed designs now include:

  • Improvements to the existing modal filter on Northcote Road, making it easier for cyclists to navigate it
  • A new toucan crossing to replace the existing school crossing patrol outside Kings Park Academy, between its junctions with South Road and Grantham Road. The nearby bus layby will be shortened to accommodate this crossing
  • A new toucan crossing on Ashley Road near the entrance to Kings Park, improving access between the new facilities in the park and the quieter, low traffic route along Windham Road towards Bournemouth train station and the town centre
  • Removal of the toucan crossing outside No. 133 Ashley Road, between its junctions with Boscombe Grove Road and South Road 
  • Widening the path on the western side of Ashley Road (between Windham Road and Boscombe Grove Road) to enable pedestrians and cyclists to access the new crossing
  • Boscombe Grove Road and South Road to remain one way for motorists, although cyclists will be able to use both roads in either direction
  • A low traffic route along Windham Road (the original proposal was for the route to go along Boscombe Grove Road/ South Road)
  • The following changes to road markings, which will affect the availability of on-street parking:
    • Double yellow lanes to replace controlled zig zags by the current crossing outside No. 133 Ashley Road
    • Double yellow lines outside no. 145 Denmark Terrace (this would replace the current no waiting restrictions between 8am-7pm)
    • Extension of double yellow lines on the southern side of Boscombe Grove Road
    • Double yellow lines to be introduced next to No. 1 South Road
    • Controlled crossing zig zags to be introduced outside Kings Park Academy on Ashley Road

Some of the proposals are subject to a separate legal process, and a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) was published in autumn 2022 outlining the changes and was recommended for approval in March 2023.

We are continuing to develop the designs for the section of the route towards Bournemouth Station.

Public consultation

A public consultation on the proposals for the Bournemouth railway station to from Jumpers Common, Christchurch route was undertaken between 24 February – 31 March 2021. The original proposals are available on our consultation hub for reference. All responses were analysed and have helped to shape the current scheme designs.  A report summarising the results is available here.
