Calthorpe Park School Accessibility Improvements

Improving accessibility, promoting healthier lifestyle choices and making it pleasant for all that travel on Hitches Lane.

Last update: June 2024

Scheme Overview

The proposed scheme is located on Hitches Lane near its junction with Emerald Avenue in Fleet and will provide a parallel crossing to provide a safe crossing point. The proposed parallel crossing will link into the existing shared use paths either side of Hitches Lane.  Please view the improvement plan.

Specifically, we want to:

  • Increase accessibility between Edenbrook Village development, Hart Leisure Centre, Calthorpe Park School and onwards to Fleet town centre.
  • Realise wider benefits of increases in active travel modes, including improved public health, reduced congestion, improved air quality and noise and carbon reduction.

Good infrastructure is vital to Hampshire's continued economic prosperity. These improvements aim to make daily travel easier for school children and residents, it would help to enhance safety and increase local opportunities for people walking, wheeling, and cycling. 

Approval to implement the scheme was given by the Director for Universal Services on 5 June 2024. Please read the Decision Report.

Works expected to start Autumn 2024.

Funding Arrangements
Funding for the transport capital delivery schemes is separate from the County Council’s revenue budget and savings proposals. In the majority of cases funding comes from external grants and / or Section 106 contribution from developers. This funding usually has conditions that strictly control on how, where and when it can be spent.
