Michael's campaign to Stop the Baker's Arms Roundabout from flooding is gaining momentum, and was recently featured on the front page of the Bournemouth Echo.
Michael is now asking all residents and businesses to help him to gather evidence of the flooding. You can email pictures or video to firstname.lastname@example.org or if they are too big to send, please get in touch on 01202 624216 to discuss alternatives to email.
Hundreds of residents have already contributed their views to Michael's survey - with people from all political parties agreeing that something needs to be done. When the roundabout floods it is not just an inconvenience - it is dangerous, and also affects local businesses.

What people are saying:
It is highly dangerous as two lanes get forced into one to avoid the flooding, and at night time it is hard to see
Would welcome any repair even if it meant holding up traffic while work was going on.
The Bakers Arms roundabout is such a key piece of infrastructure, being the main entry point for the Purbeck district. The flooding affects local businesses adding to delays and inefficiency. It also impacts on local schools, residents and emergency services. Well done for taking on this important project.
It is very dangerous and causes tailbacks in all directions.
It is particularly dangerous when it floods at night and motorbikes are very vulnerable of skidding in the unsuspected water.
I know there would be problems whilst the work is carried out but it would be worthwhile if the issue could finally be resolved.
