Councillor Rob Humby, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport said: “In discussion with Four Marks and Medstead Parish Councils we have commissioned work to look at feasibility on a number of schemes and are now seeking the public’s views. The schemes we are consulting on are: The implementation of a controlled crossing on the A31 Winchester Road at Lymington Bottom, road widening to ease access to A31 Winchester Road from Boyneswood Road and exploring the viability of a dedicated footbridge over the railway on Boyneswood Road.
I would encourage people to come along to this engagement event and share their views with our team.”
The public event will take place on Wednesday, 20 February 2019, from 2:30 –7:30pm at Four Marks Village Hall, Lymington Bottom, Four Marks, Alton GU34 5AA
Mid Hants Railway is aware of the early stage proposal for a footbridge on Boyneswood Road, which will be subject to further engineering appraisal and feasibility work dependant upon the outcome of the consultation event.
