New traffic bollards deployed to make Weymouth town centre safer

A set of new traffic bollards have been put in place in Weymouth in order to make the town centre safer for pedestrians, a news report has been able to suggest.

Traffic bollards which used to be at the top end of St Mary Street near the King’s Statue are back in position, along with bollards at the Bond Street junction.

Partnering up with Dorset County Council and Weymouth BID, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council will also operate a gate in St Thomas Street at the junction with School Street.

This is to stop unauthorised traffic using the streets during the daytime.
Cllr Jeff Cant, Leader of Weymouth and Portland Borough Council, said:

“We want to improve the environment for people commuting on foot, and make it safer, especially for those with small children.”

The bollards are put up to restrict access to all vehicles between 10.30am and 5.30pm daily.

Residents, taxis and commercial vehicles will be able to use the roads outside these times.
