First success - HCC reviews pedestrian crossing on Romsey Road at St James/ Clifton Terrace
22 February 2018
We have our first success of our campaign for a safe pedestrian crossing on Romsey Road!
We received a letter from Cllr Rob Humby that suggests that Hampshire County Council is considering a pedestrian crossing. Here is an extract from his letter:
“…confirm that design work to construct such a crossing started a while ago, and drawings are currently being prepared with a view to holding a public consultation on the proposed crossing in the spring of 2018.
As part of the design process, careful consideration is having to be given to where displaced traffic (caused by the necessary banning of some traffic movements into and out of Clifton Terrace) will relocate to, to ensure we do not cause undue problems on the very narrow local roads. The adjustment of the 20mph limit will also be considered.
I trust this is positive news, and would welcome your formal comments when the public consultation event is held, which will be advertised in due course.”
Many thanks to all who signed the petition.
