Getting here

 Due to the nature of the A338 Spur Road being the only north-south route into Bournemouth, drivers are being advised to expect delays and think more carefully about their journey.

Bournemouth is open for business as usual but it’s about to get busier – from 7 September, for nine months, the Spur Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

If you use the A338 Bournemouth Spur Road – or other main roads in the area – your journey will take longer while the road is being reconstructed, please think about how you might be able to change your daily routine to ensure you get to your destination on time.

Our journey planner on Travel Dorset can help you find alternative ways of travelling. You can subscribe to the project blog for latest news on the scheme and see a map of the routes likely to become busier.
