West Dorset MP Chris Loder has held a Road Safety Summit with Dorset Police, local councillors and local residents on the B3157 ‘Coast Road’ between Burton Bradstock and Chickerell. On Friday 13th May, Mr Loder was joined by members of Dorset Police, local Parish Councils, local residents and Chesil Bank’s Dorset Councillor Mark Roberts.
Mr Loder 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.”
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 decided to act on the concerns expressed and organised the event.
