Clifton Terrace Crossing, Winchester

Proposal for a traffic signal controlled crossing of Romsey Road at the junction with Clifton Terrace in Winchester

Last update: April 2022

Scheme overview

This scheme looks to provide a traffic signal controlled crossing of Romsey Road at the junction with Clifton Terrace in Winchester.

The junction is located on the north side of Romsey Road just west of the railway bridge and during peak times in particular is a busy location for local traffic as well as large numbers of pedestrians, cyclists and vulnerable road users looking to cross Romsey Road. The existing footways in Clifton Terrace link to a footpath on the south side of Romsey Road which runs parallel to the railway cutting. This footpath provides an important link from the train station and Peter Symonds College to the residential area of north west.  Winchester and Winchester University campus and accommodation blocks.

The existing junction with Clifton Terrace consists of a wide bellmouth to a steep uphill section with on-street parking along both sides of the carriageway. The close proximity of the rail bridge parapets to the east restricts visibility and also the space available to site a crossing near the junction but still on the desire line for the large numbers of pedestrians, cyclist and other vulnerable road users wanting to cross Romsey Road. Therefore to provide a controlled crossing to the required standards at this location it will be necessary to modify the road junction and restrict some traffic movements.
