Longham mini roundabouts - New Road, Parley Cross

Poole town centre to/from Ferndown and Wimborne

This section is currently on hold until further funding has been secured, following a national review by the Department for Transport of the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) programme.

Rising construction, labour and fuel costs, growing inflation and changes to national design standards for cycling infrastructure mean south east Dorset’s original TCF budget, awarded pre-pandemic in March 2020, is no longer sufficient to build the entire network of cycle, walking and bus improvements planned across the region. 

Priority has been given to TCF schemes that link into existing sustainable travel infrastructure, providing an immediate interim level of connectivity and more continuous travel routes.

2021 proposals

The proposals consulted on in the 2021 public consultation included: 

  • New parallel crossings on all arms of the mini roundabouts, with shared paths on all sides of the road
  • New signage along the existing path off Christchurch Road, joining into the Holmwood Park development on Ringwood Road
  • The existing path on the north side of Christchurch Road would be converted to a shared path between Longham mini roundabouts and Chine Walk
  • The existing central island near Chine Walk would be widened to make crossing safer
  • The existing path on the south side of Christchurch Road would be converted to a shared path between Chine Walk and New Road
