Wallisdown Road Major Improvements

We are currently undertaking works to improve Wallisdown Road, at Boundary Roundabout and Wallisdown Crossroads. 

Throughout 2018 we asked people about the current transport infrastructure in this part of town, and the proposed improvements that could take place. More than 3,000 people who live, work and travel in the area took part in the survey and the results will help inform the designs that we take forward.

As a key commuter route, the aims include:

  • improved access to public transport, walking and cycling facilities
  • reduction in road collisions and casualties
  • create a higher quality public realm
  • improved journeys for motorists

Design proposals for Wallisdown Crossroads and Boundary Roundabout will be available in early 2020 and construction is likely to start in the Spring.
