A31 Canford Bottom Junction Improvement 12 October 2011
The aims of the scheme are to optimise traffic flow and thus reduce congestion at the Canford Bottom junction, to the east of Wimborne Minster in Dorset. A "hamburger" junction will be created by extending the A31 (as a dual carriageway) through the existing roundabout. The roundabout will be fully signalised at all entry and exit points to manage traffic flow. In the longer term, councils in the area are preparing a transport plan which includes a proposal to upgrade this junction to full grade-separation.
