Location: Christchurch and Dorset
Purpose: BCP and Dorset Council have planned a connectivity corridor between Christchurch and Poole as a way to reduce congestion and traffic on the roads. The project will help to reduce the emissions in the BCP area and help commuters to take a more active and healthier journey. The project seeks to widen transport choices for residents by making active travel safer.
Description: The corridor will see improvements to bus, cycle and walking routes. These include new bus shelters, pedestrian crossings, wider pavements, new bridges, lower speed limits and dropped curbs to improve mobility.
Funding: A £79m grant from the government’s Transforming Cities Fund, which invests in sustainable transport. This was boosted to £102m by contributions from both councils, developers, bus companies and bike share operators.
Conservative councillor/ council lead: Cabinet Member for Transport and Sustainability at BCP Council, Cllr Mike Greene
