Poole and Christchurch residents – and visitors when they are permitted – are to be encouraged to walk and cycle rather than bring their cars into the towns.
New Wayfinding signs are being installed across Poole and Christchurch this year as part of the council’s Transforming Travel programme.
Installation of the totems in Poole, funded as part of the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership’s major £21m Port of Poole Local Growth Fund improvement programme, started this month (January). A further 20 totems will be installed in Christchurch from March.
Cllr Michael Greene, BCP Council’s portfolio holder for transport said, “By providing clear information the maps will show how quick and easy it is to walk or hop on a bike to access local amenities and explore the local neighbourhood.”
The Wayfinding totems installed in Poole will direct people to key destinations including the bus /rail stations, hospital, stadium, the ferry port, Dolphin Shopping Centre, high street and the quay.
The Christchurch Totems will similarly assist with connecting the rail station with the hospital, high street, Priory and harbour.
