Mannings Heath Mini Roundabouts - Mountbatten Roundabout

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.

Proposals include: 

  • A new two-way protected cycle track on the eastern side of Ringwood Road between Alderney Avenue and Mountbatten Roundabout
  • The existing footways on both sides of Ringwood Road would be converted to shared paths for walking and cycling
  • The existing southbound bus lane would remain
  • A new toucan crossing near the Belben Road junction, along with improvements to the existing crossing point near Alderney Avenue
  • More priority for cyclists and pedestrians at the junctions of Ringwood Road and adjoining roads
  • Changes to the road layout at Alderney Roundabout, with a cycle track on the eastern side bypassing the roundabout and all approaches reduced from three lanes to two
  • Five bus stop locations to be upgraded along route, which could include accessibility improvements, new shelters and real-time information
  • A lower speed limit of 30 mph along Ringwood Road, between Mountbatten Roundabout and Alderney Roundabout
  • The shared path on the western side of the road would connect to existing subway facilities and link up to and around Mountbatten Roundabout
  • The new two-way cycle track on the eastern side would connect into the existing shared path and improvements along Wallisdown Road

Design work is ongoing and further information will be provided at a later date.
