Hurn Roundabout

Hurn Roundabout

Start Date: May 2018                                           End Date: September 2018

The project is the third scheme delivered by Dorset County Council and strategic partner Hanson UK as part of Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership’s Bournemouth International Growth (BIG) Programme. 

The redesigned Hurn Roundabout will improve vehicle movements around the roundabout, especially HGVs, which will help keep traffic flowing through the junction. It has also improved walking and cycling links in the area, providing more sustainable travel options for local residents.

These roundabout improvements – along with planned BIG Programme schemes at Blackwater West Junction and Parley Cross – will help to relieve congestion on the B3073.

Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth, Jake Berry, said: “Driving economic growth and building a Britain fit for the future is a key government priority.

“This £45.2m investment for the Bournemouth International Growth Programme, will not only ease congestion and provide more sustainable travel options for local residents, but will also protect and support new and existing jobs in and around Bournemouth Airport and Wessex Fields.”
