The improvement works at Boundary Roundabout are progressing to schedule. BCP has now commenced on the next Phase in Talbot Avenue and need to complete some surfacing works on the roundabout, in Wallisdown Road and Talbot Avenue. This will involve a number of road closures and the use of two-way temporary traffic signals as detailed below:
- Gillett Road is currently closed and will remain closed until the end of the works in March.
- From Monday 9 November until Sunday 15 November Boundary Road will be closed to traffic in both directions to enable safe working for the Contractor and surfacing works to be undertaken. Boundary Road will be fully open to traffic on Monday 16 November. Two-way temporary traffic signals will be in operation on the roundabout on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November.
- On Thursday 19 November the south side of Talbot Avenue between Boundary and Talbot roundabouts will be closed to traffic (for people travelling east to west). This is to enable the south side of the carriageway to be resurfaced. This closure will be in place at night between 7pm and 7am.
- On Friday 20 November the north side of Talbot Avenue between Boundary and Talbot roundabouts will be closed to traffic (for people travelling west to east). This is to enable one lane of the northern carriageway to be resurfaced. This closure will be in place at night between 7pm and 7am.
Signed diversion routes will be in place while these sections of road are closed. These works are weather dependant.
The Council website has been updated with the latest information and diversion route plans. Full details of the scheme can be found here and a detailed design of the new roundabout can be viewed here.
Forming part of BCPs wider Wallisdown Corridor improvement works, the £1.6m scheme is being funded by investment from Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (Dorset LEP) and by BCP Council. The scheme will deliver long term benefits for Bournemouth University by providing safer and more effective journeys for all student and staff road users.
