In case you missed this in the last Council newsletter ---
As part of an annual review, a number of potential major road changes are being proposed. Included are proposals to reverse the traffic flow in Church Hill, reducing the length of the loading bay in Institute Road and making Horsecliff Lane (adjacent
Residents’ car park) into a one-way system.
Of the proposals, the reversing of traffic using Church Hill has been discussed for many years. The benefits have been observed on carnival day when the temporary arrangements allow easy access to the whole of
south Swanage, obviating the need to go through Town. This has huge implications
for those living in this area and those attempting to get to the hospital or to Durlston. In an attempt to free up traffic in the town centre, particularly
emergency vehicles, reducing the length of the loading bay is aimed discouraging
use by private cars in favour of HGV deliveries. The proposals in Horsecliff Lane are necessitated by the large number of drivers disobeying
the “No Entry” sign and entering the Recreation Ground car by ignoring the one-way section of road.
All comments and feedback on these proposals should be directed the Town Council either in writing to the Town Hall or via a Comments link on the council's website: http:www.swanage.gov.uk
