Concerns about speeding on the coast road between Weymouth and Bridport were highlighted at a road safety summit.

West Dorset MP Chris Loder was joined by by members of Dorset Police, local parish councils, local residents and Chesil Bank’s Dorset Councillor Mark Roberts to discuss issues about the B3157, particularly between Burton Bradstock and Chickerell.

Arguably West Dorset’s most scenic road, the B3157 has been the location of several serious collisions in recent years, and with concerns over the upcoming summer tourist season, Mr Loder organised the gathering.

He said: “Friday’s summit presented a welcome opportunity for members of the Chesil Bank community to share their concerns and share their insights with Dorset Council and Dorset Police on the key road safety issues along the B3157. I am clear that action needs to be taken to combat the excessive speeding on this road.”
