Wimborne Road Proposed Walking and Cycling Improvements

A series of walking, cycling and bus improvements are planned along Wimborne Road, between Denmark Lane and the New Inn junction, that will form part of TCF’s 7km sustainable travel route between Poole town centre and Merley, Poole.

The proposals include:

  • Upgrades to the Serpentine Road roundabout including the introduction of three new parallel crossings, with footways converted to shared use for both pedestrians and cyclists
  • The existing footway on the western side of Wimborne Road between Serpentine Road and Heckford Road will be widened and converted to shared use with priority over adjoining roads
  • New cycle lanes will be installed on both sides of Wimborne Road between Heckford Road and New Inn junction, protected from the carriageway by a kerb with priority over adjoining roads
  • The Tatnam Road/Garland Road junction will be upgraded, with a new toucan crossing installed with raised table pedestrian and cyclist priority over the adjoining roads
  • Existing footways around Garland Road converted to shared use, and new parallel crossings installed on Joliffe Road and Garland Road
  • All parking will be removed along the western side of the road between Tatnam Road and New Inn junction to provide space for the cycle lanes
  • New and improved toucan crossings installed along the route
  • Introduction of shared space at bus stops, with five stops being slightly relocated
