Over Wallop traffic calming proposals

Proposals for traffic calming measures for Over Wallop

Last update: June 2024

Latest updates

Hampshire County Council appointed Colas Ltd and have implemented the traffic management measures. Following the latest engagement and discussions with the community and Parish Council, the scope of the scheme aims to re-enforce village speed limit with road markings, road signs and gateway features (providing a physical and visual indication to vehicles that they are entering the parish and re-enforce the 30mph speed limit).

Works completed summer 2023.  Please view the visuals of the traffic measures implemented.

Scheme overview

Overview

Hampshire County Council, has progressed the detailed design for a traffic scheme in Over Wallop and Nether Wallop, which includes traffic management measures on Salisbury Road and the closure of Salisbury Lane.  Please view the proposed traffic calming plans and locations.

A study commissioned in 2013 by Hampshire County Council found that a significant amount of the traffic travelled through Over Wallop and some vehicle speeds were often in excess of the 30mph speed limit.

The study recommended traffic calming measures along Station Road, concentrated south of Salisbury Lane.

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

The County Council is working with Over Wallop Parish Council on a proposed temporary traffic management trial to include the closure of Salisbury Lane and traffic calming measures on Station Road.

Following discussions between Hampshire County Council and the Over Wallop Parish Council, a survey/consultation, was undertaken by the Parish Council in January 2022. The survey showed that there was insufficient local support for the scheme in the original format.  

Following an Executive Members Decision Day Meeting on 10th of March 2022, a decision was approved that the project will not be progressed in the original format as there was insufficient local support for it. It was decided that some small scale traffic management measures will be implemented in early 2023, and the proposal aims to focus on reinforcing existing speed limits.

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.
