Wallisdown Corridor FAQs

What’s happening in the Wallisdown area?

The Wallisdown Corridor is the focus of a major infrastructure investment schemes. These aim to:

  • Improve access to public transport, walking and cycling facilities
  • Reduce road collisions and casualties
  • Create a higher quality public realm
  • Improve journeys time reliability

What is happening at Boundary Roundabout?

Plans for Boundary Roundabout will address the urgent need for better pedestrian and cycle facilities in the area. In six years from 2013 to 2018, there were 22 collisions, resulting in 22 casualties. 77% of which involved cyclists and 95% involving vulnerable road users (cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists).

The improvements will reduce collisions and casualties in the future by providing safer facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. They will also encourage the use of more sustainable, healthier and environmentally friendly modes of transport.

Why were the trees cut down on Boundary Roundabout?

Following preparatory works in early 2020, every effort has been made throughout the design process to avoid the removal of trees.

To mitigate the loss of some trees, a replacement programme will ensure that more new trees are planted around the roundabout than were removed. In addition, wildflowers and planting will also be introduced. This will create a more attractive public realm for both residents and visitors.
