Cash injection could fund more 20mph zones

There could be 20mph zones introduced in Dorchester after a slice of government funding was injected into the county.

Dorset County Council has secured £64,000 from the Department for Transport’s Local Sustainable Transport Funds.

The resources could be used to introduce 20mph zones in the county town and Weymouth, although no details of where the zones will be have yet been released.

Announcing the funding award, transport minister Baroness Kramer said: “We’re serious about making transport better for the environment, whether that is by cutting carbon or improving air quality.”

Baroness Kramer added: “Encouraging more people to cycle or use public transport makes sense for local economies, because it reduces congestion and improves public health.

“That’s why we’re providing record levels of funding for communities wanting to make their transport networks cleaner and greener.”
