Benellen Avenue area – proposed 20mph zone

Have your say

This consultation on the proposed 20mph zone in the Benellen Avenue area has now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated.

A previous consultation was undertaken in Spring 2021 on the Benellen Avenue – Glenferness Avenue section.

The proposals included:

  • New planting on Leven Avenue - no direct access for vehicles between Glenferness Avenue and Branksome Wood Road as a result
  • A new protected cycle track installed on both sides of Glenferness Avenue
  • A new toucan crossing would be installed on Glenferness Avenue, near the Leven Avenue junction
  • The junction layout revised where Rothesay Road meets Glenferness Avenue, giving more priority to people walking and cycling across the junction

In light of the feedback received and the updated traffic and cycle count data collected in the area, the new planting and resultant road closure on Leven Avenue is no longer required. Instead, we are now proposing an alternative set of proposals for the area which are designed to increase safety and improve the area for pedestrians and cyclists on this quiet route, by encouraging lower vehicle speeds and discouraging through traffic.

Specific features of the proposals include:

  • Introduction a 20mph speed limit zone along Leven Avenue, Walsford Road, Benellen Avenue, Benellen Road, Benellen Gardens, and Leven Close
  • Raised tables, narrowing of junctions (kerb buildout) and new signage installed to indicate the 20mph zone boundary, at the junctions of:
    • Glenferness Avenue and Leven Avenue
    • Glenferness Avenue and Walsford Road
    • Glenferness Avenue and Benellen Road
    • Branksome Wood Road and Benellen Avenue
    • Branksome Wood Road and Benellen Garden
    • Branksome Wood Road and Leven Avenue
  • Raised junctions installed at Leven Avenue / Walsford Road / Benellen Avenue, and Benellen Avenue / Benellen Road
  • Raised tables installed along Leven Avenue


Consultation event:

A consultation event was held at Bournemouth University on Tuesday 5 April.
