Dorchester Transport and Environment Plan - DTEP
The project aims to enhance the environment of Dorchester by implementing a series of traffic management measures to re-distribute traffic in the town. Although the scheme will not increase the capacity of the roads in the town, the improvements should help improve traffic flow.

Following consultation with residents in the area on introduction of a 20mph zone covering Victoria Road, Westover Road, St Helens Road and Albert Road (west of Cornwall Road), several comments were received regarding the location of two of the proposed road humps and these humps have been consolidated into one hump at a revised location.

Victoria Road layout and features
36% of households consulted responded, of which 75% were in favour and 25% were not.
The next step is to begin the necessary legal procedure to introduce a Traffic Regulation Order to allow us to install a 20mph zone and road humps. This order will be advertised and there will be opportunity to comment on the scheme during this process.
The creation of a 20mph zone requires traffic calming features, road humps and such traffic calming features should be illuminated through the hours of darkness.
