Sandy Lane

Poole Town Centre to Wareham Road and Holton Heath

A report summarising the results of public consultation undertaken 24 February to 31 March 2021 is available here and the report covering 10 May to 14 June 2021 consultation is available here.

Proposals include:

  • New wayfinding signage and better crossing facilities on Sandy Lane and Watery Lane, with drainage improvements to avoid the route flooding. The route could alternatively follow Slough Lane, rather than Watery Lane
  • Existing footpath upgraded to shared use for pedestrians and cyclists, designed to accommodate tidal flooding – the route would be screened from the A35 and run along the edge of the nature reserve, developed alongside RSPB
  • A new shared use bridge would be installed across Sherford River, with the shared use path continuing along riverside to connect with Wareham Road

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