A354 Weymouth Relief Road 8 January 2011

A new alignment for the primary A354 into Weymouth, bypassing the bottlenecks in Upwey and Broadwey. The road will start from the Ridgeway just north of the notorious "Bincombe kink" and strike eastwards to meet the Littlemoor roundabout (where the A353 will be diverted to meet it), before hugging the South West Main Line to connect with the top of the Weymouth Bypass at Manor House roundabout. The road will be single-carriageway with one flyover junction and two new roundabouts. It is expected to be completed well in advance the Olympic sailing events in Weymouth Harbour in 2012.
