Petersfield Road NCN22, Havant Cycle and Pedestrian Improvements

To improve accessibility to the existing walking and cycling infrastructure

Last update: March 2022

Scheme overview

The scheme will seek to improve accessibility to the existing walking and cycling infrastructure along sections of the NCN22 (National Cycle Network Route 22) in Leigh Road, Eastern Road and Elmleigh Road.  Please view the location plan.

Scheme Details:

  • The centre line of Eastern Road will be removed just west of the junction with New Lane and on road cycle markings will be installed on the carriageway and two priority build outs will be installed along Eastern Road just to the west of Centenary Gardens in order to encourage slower vehicle speeds in the road.

  • A new Zebra crossing will be provided in Leigh Road at its junction with Eastern Road and Elmleigh Road.

  • The junction of Eastern Road and Leigh Road will be narrowed in order to widen the footpaths on either side of the road thus creating more space for pedestrians.

  • Sections of Leigh Road will see the footway on the west side widened between 0.5m and 1m in order to provide more space for pedestrians and this will see the carriageway width reduced to 5.5m.

  • Three priority build outs will be installed in Leigh Road in order to further encourage lower vehicle speeds. Three new benches will be installed in specific locations along the route which is shown in the attached plans

  • A new raised table uncontrolled pedestrian/cycle crossing will be installed where Leigh Road terminates outside the Parkway Centre. This will reduce conflict between pedestrians and cyclist where pedestrians will have priority.
