Upton Cross to Upton Country Park - cycleway
This scheme will provide improved cycle facilities along the B3067 Poole Road, between Upton Cross double mini-roundabout and Upton Country Park.
A number of cycle routes converge at Upton Country Park, linking Upton to Poole, Hamworthy, Creekmoor and Corfe Mullen. At the moment there is a missing westward link to Upton centre and beyond.
This scheme will build a shared use footway/cycleway along Poole Road from Upton Cross to Upton Country Park, providing a cycle link for commuters and for recreational users wishing to access Upton Woods, the Country Park, The Castleman Trailway and Holes Bay.
Built in phases
In 2015, we consulted on proposals to provide improved cycle facilities along the B3067 Poole Road, between Upton Cross double mini-roundabout and Upton Country Park entrance.
Phase 1 of this scheme (from Upton Cross to Factory Road) was completed in Summer 2015, Phase 2a (from Factory Road to Poole Road/A35 slip road junction) was completed in winter 2017.
Phase 2b, from Poole Road/A35 slip road junction to Upton Country Park and including a link to the north side of the A35, is currently being designed.
