Wallisdown Corridor Improvements

A series of major infrastructure investment and improvement schemes are being delivered in the Wallisdown area.

The Wallisdown Corridor is the focus of major infrastructure investment schemes. Together they will improve access along this key route, provide better transport links between our towns and support the growth of the local economy. They will also contribute towards reducing journey times and improving safety, whilst also providing a better public realm for residents and encouraging more people to travel sustainably.
