Glenferness Avenue Proposed Walking and Cycling Improvements

A series of walking and cycling improvements are planned along Glenferness Avenue (Talbot Roundabout to Leven Avenue) that will form part of TCF’s 14km sustainable travel route between Bournemouth town centre and Ferndown.

What is happening:

The proposed improvements include:

  • A new protected cycle track will be built on both sides of Glenferness Avenue
  • New cycling and walking bridges over railway line will be built (see below) creating shared use paths on both sides of the road bridge with cyclists and pedestrians separated by a white line
  • More priority for cyclists and pedestrians along Glenferness Avenue across adjoining roads
  • New parallel crossings and a new toucan crossing along the route

Bridge improvements

A planning application has been approved for improvements to be made to the bridge across the railway line on Glenferness Avenue.

New walking and cycling bridges over the railway line either side of the existing road bridge will be constructed. The road bridge itself will remain unaltered.
