PROJECT COMPLETED

Outcomes:

A £3.3 million investment into the A349 (the main link road into the Port of Poole and the town centre from the A31) at Gravel Hill & Dunyeats.  Work covered:

  • Stabilising and strengthening embankments
  • Increasing capacity for motor vehicles at the Queen Anne junction
  • Improving facilities for pedestrians and cyclists

Gravel Hill and Dunyeats scheme developments will all contribute to the outcomes of the Port of Poole Programme

Outputs:

Mildren Construction was appointed as contactor and they carried out the improvement works to strengthen Gravel Hill embankment and address drainage.  This involved:

  • The major earthworks to widen and stabilise the embankment.
  • Refurbishment of the large culvert (man-made piped structure) which carries Blackwater Stream under the road.
  • Improvements to the road's surface drainage.
  • Widening the existing footway to construct the shared pedestrian/cycle lane to provide the missing cycle link connecting Merley to Poole Town Centre.

Outcome: 

These projects contribute to the wider Port of Poole outcomes
