Lane closure

May 13, 2011

Tomorrow one lane will be closed on Boot Hill on the approach to Harbour Crossroads while posts for a variable message sign (VMS) are installed.

The VMS is part of the Weymouth Showcase Scheme, which will also provide car park guidance signs and real time information at bus stops.

Once installed, the sign on Boot Hill will provide information about the Town Bridge lifting as well as advising motorists of events, delays and safety information.

Examples of real time car park signs (large version)

Work is starting this week to install detection equipment at the entrance and exit of Weymouth car parks.

This will allow real time information to be displayed to tell drivers where the available parking spaces are.

Car park guidance signs will be located on:

  • Granby Way
  • Swannery Bridge
  • King Street
  • A354 Weymouth Relief Road
  • Commercial Road

These will be complemented with real time ‘flag’ signs at the relevant car parks: Swannery, Park Street, Melcombe Regis, Harbourside, the multi-storey and Cosens Quay.
