Keyhole Bridge – Help protect our residents and our green spaces
Latest: Sept. 4, 2021
Following a meeting with our legal team we have been able to agree a revised cost estimate of £12,500.
BCP Council ignored the views of residents and reopened Keyhole Bridge to traffic. We are challenging this decision in a Judicial Review.
In August 2020 Keyhole Bridge in Poole was closed to traffic under an experimental traffic order. The closure made the bridge safe for non-drivers and protected Poole Park from hundreds of cars an hour. It also reduced traffic passing Whitecliff and Baiter parks. Many people who had been unable to use the bridge were finally able to do so knowing they could do so in safety. It was a hugely popular move, and the majority of residents asked for it to remain closed. Yet in March 2021 the Council reopened the bridge.
