Park and ride

Planning applications will soon be submitted by the Olympic Delivery Authority for five temporary park and ride sites that will be used by ticketed spectators and other visitors to Weymouth and Portland on sailing event days.

Two sites are proposed outside Dorchester which will catch drivers from the A35 westbound and eastbound.

One site is proposed for agricultural land in the Littlemoor area.

The new Mount Pleasant park and ride site is proposed to be utilised for ticketed spectators.

Lodmoor park and ride side is proposed to be used as a park and stride.

It is proposed that the Swannery Car Park will become a ‘transport hub’ where park and ride users and long distance coaches will arrive and depart.

The sites will be heavily advertised and visitors will be encouraged to book ahead and advised that parking in the town centre will be very restricted.
