Bear Cross - Longham Bridge
Poole town centre to/from Ferndown and Wimborne
Public consultation for sustainable travel plans was undertaken between 10 May to 14 June 2021 and responses are available here.
- The existing shared path on the eastern side of Ringwood Road would be improved through vegetation clearance and widening
- A new parallel crossing by the access road into Millhams Recycling Centre
- The existing path to the east of Longham Bridge would be converted to a surfaced shared path, offering an alternative route for walking and cycling away from the main road, over the River Stour via a new bridge and towards Longham mini roundabout
- Two bus stop locations to be upgraded along the route, which could include accessibility improvements, new shelters and real-time information
