  • Fly tipping in more than one area, blocking the river Mude., 27th April
    There are 4 separate areas of Fly tipping both domestic and industrial. In three places the river Mude is blocked.

The dipping is worst following the River Mude up towards Burton common approx 500m where a large number of black sacks completely block the stream. The contents of the black sacks are unknown and may be causing untold damage polluting all downstream including Mudeford woods nature reserve ponds and out to Christchurch Harbour. Please help to clean this up ASAP.

  • Speed warning sign incorrectly set, 15th April
    The 30mph speed limit sign towards here regis centre from bovington is triggered can be triggered before entering to 40mph zone, when travelling at 34mph in the 40 zone it is also triggered. this is well outside of the actual 30mph zone. as these can be used to assess the amount of speeding motorists this gives a false impression about this location

  • Broken glass, 14th April
    Large amount of broken glass in the underpass between the town centre and Bargates. The glass is on the Bargates side of the underpass between the two paths/steps leading up to ground level. This broken glass - and litter- has been there for a few days now. I would have thought that this would have been cleared up during 'normal' town centre street cleaning. I mentioned it to two men cleaning the High Street but they said 'not our job' I asked whose job is it then? They said they didn't know!

  • Suggestion: LED matrix signs, 14th April
    Along the Wessex Way Spur Road, there are currently no digital warning signs. Given the successful use of LED matrix signs on dual carriageways and motorways elsewhere, I recommend that during or just after upcoming renewal work, LED warning signs can be installed in the central reservation, on overhanging poles, on bridges over the road and/or on A-frames. These will provide the following benefits: Ability to warn drivers of lane closures, fog, slippery surface or queuing traffic ahead Ability to change the speed limit (eg. when the road is icy, very wet or shrouded in fog, or when there has been an accident or there are queues ahead). Ability to convey other information if using large signs, such as 'Air Festival - Queues Likely 31 Aug - 2 Sep, use P&R' The cost of installing and maintaining these would be offset by the reduced number of traffic incidents and thus hopefully reduced damage and disruption to infrastructure therein caused, and by reduced negative impact on the economy and environment of cars queuing where their drivers could have known to use an alternative route, as well as reduced number of metal temporary signs required during roadworks etcetera. A centralised control of all the signs along the Wessex Way would be required for this to be effective, so a collaboration between Dorset, Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole councils would be welcomed here.
