Transforming Travel - Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) programme

Transforming Cities Fund's sustainable travel routes

BCP Council and Dorset Council are jointly proposing six new sustainable travel routes, which will be funded through the £100+ million Transforming Cities Fund and form a major part of the region’s Transforming Travel programme to create a greener, healthier and better-connected region.

The councils secured the funding based on its commitment to driving economic growth through investment in public sustainable transport across south east Dorset. Proposals include 78km of new cycling and walking routes and bus infrastructure.

It will be the largest sustainable travel improvement the area has ever seen. The routes aim to give people safe, quick and environmentally friendly travel alternatives to driving, particularly for short journeys. This in turn will help reduce road congestion as well as carbon emissions.

What we've done so far


We ran an initial engagement exercise in order to gather feedback on the proposed routes at the end of 2020. We have used your views and ideas to develop the plans for this consultation. You can view the full report on this engagement by clicking here or from the Documents section on the right side of the page.


Over 12,000 people viewed plans for the first four of the six TCF sustainable travel routes which we consulted on earlier this year. Findings will be shared shortly. Click on the buttons below to review the detailed proposals for these routes.







Outline Business Case

The Outline Business Case (OBC) is a requirement of the TCF grant funding conditions set by the Department for Transport (DfT). The document provides evidence for consultation to demonstrate that the proposed sustainable travel corridors fit with wider TCF objectives, are value for money, commercially viable, financially affordable and achievable at this stage of the programme development. You can find the document and the appendices in the Documents folder.
