The proposed works on Gravel Hill scheduled to start next year and last for 8 months include the replacement of the Crematorium Roundabout at the junction of Dunyeats Road and Gravel Hill. We believe that this is unnecessary since traffic flows smoothly at present and any delays at peak times are relatively brief, especially on Dunyeats Road. The installation of traffic lights will, by their very nature, interrupt traffic flows, prevent the smooth access onto the junction and cause additional delay since traffic movements are halted.
If you agree that the installation of traffic lights at this junction is both unnecessary and a waste of money please sign the petition below which states:
“We the undersigned believe the replacement of the Crematorium Roundabout at the junction of Dunyeats Road and Gravel Hill will not only unnecessarily interrupt traffic flows but will also increase congestion. We request Poole Transportation Services listen to the views of local residents and users of the Crematorium Roundabout and withdraw the plans to replace the roundabouts with traffic lights.”
