Happy New Year!

Welcome to the third edition of the BTN Newsletter, we hope this finds you all well rested after the festive period.  This month we'll focus on phase 2 of the A338 roadworks and our offer of a snapshot survey, the new grant application window for the Dorset Business Travel Grant, and the new BTN website.

A338 roadworks, Phase 2 - and a free snapshot travel survey!

Phase 2 of the A338 roadworks has begun.  Please visit the A338 spur road blog for all the details and diversions from different directions of travel.  Make sure you share this information with your employees so they can keep up to date with how the roadworks will affect them.

Do you actually know how the A338 roadworks are affecting your staff?  Have you adapted any working practices to help relieve the stress of their daily commute, and are they working?  Do you want to know how they have adapted their routines?  If so the BTN are offering members a free snapshot staff travel survey so the effects can be quantified.  

The results of the survey could be used to support future sustainable transport initiatives, businesses cases for new schemes or even in funding applications.  

If you would like a snapshot travel survey please e-mail us at
