Dorchester Transport and Environment Plan (DTEP) making Dorchester better

The Dorchester Transport and Environment Plan aims to protect the historic heart of the town by reducing through traffic and improving air quality.

The project aims to enhance the environment of Dorchester by implementing a series of traffic management measures to re-distribute traffic in the town. Although the scheme will not increase the capacity of the roads in the town, the improvements should help improve traffic flow.
