SY6778 : North Quay/Westwey/Rodwell Road junction

taken 6 years ago, near to Weymouth, Dorset, Great Britain

North Quay/Westwey/Rodwell Road junction
North Quay/Westwey/Rodwell Road junction
Site of former roundabout. The roundabout was removed and replaced with light as part of the upgrade to cater with projected traffic during the Olympics, however during normal rush hours it struggles to cope. The A354 comes in from the right and crosses the junction to climb Rodwell Road on its way to Portland. North Quay comes in on the left past the recently closed fire station. The large ASDA superstore which can be seen on the left contributes significantly to the traffic problems at this junction.

The fire station, which opened in 1939, closed in July 2011. Redevelopment as retirement flats has been proposed, and opposed. A new station has been constructed on the old Westhaven Junior School site, on Radipole Lane.
