original plan for the junction

Mannings Heath Roundabout is a junction on the northern edge of Poole. It was originally planned as a roundabout interchange in the early 1970s complete with freeflowing links between south and east. The route to the north would have headed towards the A338 near Bournemouth Airport. By the time the A3049 Dorset Way was extended northwards in the 1980s the proposals were watered down with this, Tower Park Roundabout and Alderney Roundabout being built as flat roundabouts instead of interchanges and Dorset Way north of the junction was abandoned. Proposals have existed to resurrect part of this route as a link road to the A31 at Ameysford Roundabout.
