Petition - A33 Basingstoke Road, Kingsworthy - Request for 40mph speed limit

Response from Hampshire County Council, December 2016

I refer to your recent petition regarding the above.

Traffic surveys have recently been undertaken and the speed data obtained will now be analysed in conjunction with the updated injury accident record. This data will form the basis of further discussions with the Police regarding the request to reduce the 50mph speed limit to 40mph on the A33 through the Cart & Horses junction. We will keep the local member, Councillor Porter, updated on these investigations.

The recent fatal accident that occurred near the junction is still under investigation by the Police, but early indications suggest that this unfortunate incident was not related to the new road layout and that speed was not a contributory factor.

Yours sincerely

Cllr Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport
