Dorset Rd New Traffic Island

On Monday 1st July FM Conway will start work to install a traffic island in Dorset Road, just south of the junction with Sheridan Road.

This may come as a surprise to many of you as the initial consultation was not wide-spread, with notices only going out to those properties who would lose parking bays.

However MPWIR are very much in support of the crossing and we have been pressing for this since last year, in response to residents’ concerns.  The traffic island will provide a safer crossing point for pedestrians (including pupils of Rutlish School) between Sheridan Road and the footpath leading to Tramlink.  It will also improve sight lines and discipline traffic turning right out of Sheridan Road onto Dorset Road.

In the short term expect severe traffic disruption on Dorset Road between 9.30am and 3pm from Monday 1st July to Friday 5th July (or until the works are completed, if earlier).  Temporary traffic lights will operate on Dorset Road.  FM Conway (020-8636 8822) can provide up to date information while the work is in progress.

The first residents engagement meeting took place on November 22nd.
