Local residents and businesses have been contacting Kate with further traffic concerns at the junction of Charminster Road and West Way. This has extremely loose corners which encourage traffic to turn left at speed. This has led to a number of minor collisions.

Kate has taken up with BCP Council whether squaring off the corners would be a positive calming step.
