Plan for safer crossings

Hampshire County Council is considering possible changes to the junctions and roundabouts in the village to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists, and to encourage through traffic to use the Stubbington bypass.

Stubbington councillors and the County Councillor took part in an initial consultation with officers, and there will be a public consultation in the summer.

The work will not start until after the by-pass is open, so probably early in 2022.

It would be confined to making crossings safer at the junctions of Gosport Road/Stubbington Lane, Gosport Road/Burnt House Lane, and Gosport Road/TitchfieldRoad/Mays Lane, and measures to discourage traffic through the village from other areas..

Suggested changes to village car parks which were in an early leaked draft have been shelved. Some were clearly inpractical and councillors emphasised the importance of good parking provision to the viability of the shopping centre.
