Traffic is flowing

Lanehouse sign (large version)

Signals on Lanehouse Rocks Road were altered after the first day of the Weymouth Transport Package diversion along the road caused heavy congestion.

Lanehouse Rocks Road has seen a 75 per cent increase in traffic since the start of the junction works on Harbour Roundabout.

Vehicle counting software has also recorded that there is only a small increase in the delay usually experienced before the works started.

    Then the software is inaccurate. I could not get off Foord’s roundabout at 11am on Saturday because of the queue on up to Wyke Rd and all down Lanehouse to the lights. If you wish to be taken seriously, then be honest about the problem or change your software as I don’t know anyone who would describe that as a “small delay”.

    HI

    Can you tell me under what circumstances that the right turn into Lynch Road can be blocked off coming from Portland. Stuck in the massive queues around 5ish I counted on three occasions 3 or 4 cars moving forward at a time, due to traffic stuck waiting to turn right. This will only get worse now due to the school holidays.

      Hi Simon,

      This is a difficult situation for us to keep everyone happy with.

      The signed diversion route is straight down Lanehouse Rocks Road so that people turning right don’t hold up traffic (as happened during the first few days of the works), however, some local drivers are insisting on ignoring this diversion.

      We changed the lights at the Fiveways end of Lynch Road to dissuade drivers from using this route, but residents were unhappy with the stationary traffic so the lights were changed back.

      And local businesses in the area have expressed that they fear for their trade if the road is blocked off completely.

      We are continuing to monitor the situation and we will pay particular attention during the next few weeks of summer holiday traffic.
