Over Wallop traffic calming proposals

Proposals for traffic calming measures for Over Wallop

Last update: September 2020

Scheme overview

Overview

Hampshire County Council, with the support of Test Valley Borough Council, is progressing the detailed design which includes traffic management measures along Station Road. 

A study commissioned in 2013 by Hampshire County Council confirmed that a significant amount of the traffic through Over Wallop was not stopping, the volume of traffic was inappropriate for the nature of Station Road and Salisbury Lane, as were vehicle speeds, often in excess of the 30mph speed limit.

The study recommended two options for the type of traffic calming measures along Station Road, concentrated south of Salisbury Lane, to help slow vehicle speeds.

The study also recommended closing Salisbury Lane, to prevent drivers from avoiding the traffic calming measures.

Scheme details

The proposal aims to:

  • slow traffic along Station Road 
  • deter drivers from using Over Wallop as a short cut 
  • promote the use of Old Stockbridge Road as an alternative to travelling through Over Wallop 
  • improve the level of amenity for local residents
