Andover: Town Mill and Bridge Street accessibility and environmental improvements

Last update: September 2017

Scheme overview

Hampshire County Council and Test Valley Borough Council will look to improve accessibility for pedestrians to the River Anton and the local park at Town Mill.

The project will enhance the existing pedestrian corridor, provide greater access and connectivity to key locations in the town.  The route will run from Andover train station to the town centre, through to Town Mill via Bridge Street/Town Mill Road/Chantry Shopping Centre.
The scheme is aimed at making improvements to pedestrian access along Town Mill and the park to encourage more people to travel sustainably into the town centre. The proposed public realm improvements will enhance the environment  and help support the local economy.  

Improvements include:

  • widening the existing footway in Town Mill along the River Anton
  • footpath widening in the park
  • environmental improvements along Town Mill and the river (soft landscaping)
  • new street furniture
  • improved pedestrian access (provide additional pedestrian crossing points along the corridor)

The scheme is currently programmed to start in January 2018 and we expect it to be completed in Spring 2018.

Public consultation

The consultation period is now closed and a report of this will be published in the near future.
