Petition Construct a bypass around Chideock, Dorset to relieve the traffic problems.
A bypass is needed to divert the A35 trunk road away from the centre of this ancient village and improve the environment and road safety in the area.
Traffic delays potentially harm the much needed economic benefits of local tourism.
There are safety issues caused by the volume of traffic. Source for traffic volumes: David Peacock for Dorset CPRE (London Inn traffic 1986-2016)
There are health hazards arising from the traffic pollution. Source for air quality: www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/airquality/chideock
