A new cycle route is to be constructed on both sides of Whitelegg Way between the Redhill and Northbourne roundabouts.
Work, which will start at the end of May, will form part of a 13km sustainable travel route between Merley and Christchurch.
Julian McLaughlin, director of Transport and Engineering for BCP Council said: “We’re excited to see the cycling, walking and bus improvements funded through the Transforming Cities Fund get underway in BCP Council area – it’s all part of our ambition to transform local travel and give people greater options and confidence to get out and about locally without having to rely on the car. The benefits of sustainable travel are well proven and are helping us to build a greener, healthier and better-connected region.”
In addition, the speed limit along Whitelegg Way will be reduced from 40mph to 30mph.
Work will also start at the Upper Gardens in Bournemouth. This will include widening the existing cycle/footpath and lighting improvements.
