Retail park junction

July 25, 2011

The last junction improved as part of the Weymouth Transport Package will be switched on during the afternoon of Tuesday, 26 July.

The Jubilee Retail Park entrance/exit, Radipole Park Drive and Swannery Car Park have had their kerbs realigned and signals installed.

This junction will feed into Kings Crossroads and improve the access into and out of the retail park.

King Street will reopen to two-way traffic during Thursday 21 July.

Thank you for your patience during the one-way closure.

On Wednesday 20 July, the new signals at the junction of Queen Street with King Street will be switched on.

Rumour – retail park exit

Jubilee Retail Park junction (large version)

Vehicles will still be able to turn right out of the Jubilee Retail Park onto Radipole Park Drive.

It appears that the construction of the pedestrian/traffic island on Jubilee Close has caused some people to believe that it will be left turn only.

As you can see from this design drawing, there will be a left turn filter lane and a separate lane for people wishing to turn right or go straight on into the Swannery Car Park.

Jubilee Retail Park junction (large version)

Work has started this week to build out the kerb alignment and traffic islands for the new signalised junction on Radipole Park Drive.

This junction will manage traffic on Radipole Park Drive and vehicles entering and exiting Swannery Car Park and Jubilee Retail Park, and will be linked with the Kings junction.

This will help prevent the congestion often experienced in the retail park car park and Radipole Park Drive/Kings Roundabout area.

The junction is programmed to be finished in early July.
