Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “The new relief road gives us the ideal opportunity to take a fresh look at how people get around the town. The County Council is fully committed to the successful regeneration of Whitehill & Bordon, and these proposals are designed to integrate new developments with the existing town.
“Thanks to everyone who came to our public exhibitions in July. We’ve got some good feedback already but want to hear from as many people as possible. Information on the proposals is still on display at Bordon Library and at the Forest Centre, along with questionnaires and pre-paid return envelopes. People can also respond online”
The County Council is asking people their views on proposals for the Whitehill & Bordon Integration Project - a collection of transport schemes planned to be put in place over a number of years, once the new relief road is fully open and becomes the main route for through traffic.
The plans involve a package of transport measures to support Whitehill & Bordon’s regeneration into a Green and Healthy Town, including:
Providing improved routes and more crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists
Making it easier for existing residents to access the new facilities
Making it easier for local drivers to get about
Reducing traffic speeds in key locations such as the entrance to the new town centre
Councillor Humby continued: “It’s really important we hear from the local community, so I would urge people to let us know what they think of the proposals.”
The survey is open until 9 September 2018.
