New East/West connection for Dorchester

A key benefit of North Dorchester Garden Community is the delivery of the Northern Link Road which will tie together the A35 and A37 and other northern routes, particularly the A352 and C12 to Sherborne. This link will allow traffic heading east/north or west/north to avoid the southern bypass and the High Street, relieving congestion on these routes.

Pedestrian and cycle corridor

In moving through-traffic off Cokers Frome Road and onto the Link Road, the lane can be dedicated as a safe and pleasant pedestrian and cycle route. It may also be possible to use Cokers Frome Road as a fast bus connection.
