    Traffic Chaos Ahead For Merely Roundabouts
    After nine months of chaos on local roads while the Canford Bottom Roundabout rebuild took place motorists are now set for more congestion and chaos thanks to Merley Roundabout closures during the Olympics. Between the 29th July and the 11th August 2012 the A349 arm of the junction will be closed so traffic can flow uninterrupted past the town on towards Weymouth, with access to Merley House remaining open from the A31 in both...

    Public Outrage Grows At Loss Of Wimborne Flyer
    After the cancellation of the much loved Wilts & Dorset No 3 bus service, which connected Wimborne to Poole via Merely, Corfe Mullen and Broadstone, there is a growing call for it to be reinstated. The No 3 service has been tacked onto the No 4 service and has attracted complaints of delays and overcrowding. To combat this Wilts & Dorset introduced the 4X service to help solve the problem, but this service has also attracted...

    As a pedestrian keen cyclist and a car driver and I believe quite tolerant, I do get very annoyed when pedal cycles use the pavements and then believe misguidedly that I as a pedestrian should get out of their way WRONG. A man came up behiund me the other day while I was walking on the small pavement and rang his bell furiously at me.

    Increase In Traffic Congestion Around Wimborne
    The Highways Agency project manager Robert Mackenzie was recently quoted with regards to the Canford Bottom Roundabout works as saying, "We were very aware of the local impact of the road closures," but then went on to say he didn't anticipate that bottlenecking at the Merley end of the A31 would be a problem. Really? If only he had asked anyone who actually uses the roads near the Merley Roundabouts at rush hour and he would...
