Timsbury to Romsey Accessibility Improvements

Supporting healthier lifestyle choices, making it safer and pleasanter for all.

Last update: June 2024

Scheme Overview

Sustrans are working in partnership with Hampshire County Council and Test Valley Borough Council to design a safer route for walking, wheeling and cycling between Timsbury and Romsey.  A number of issues have been identified to address, such as missing pavements and vehicle speeds along the route.

The scheme design proposal would be to create a safe path along Yokesford Hill, Cupernham Lane and Belbins, separate from the road, and a signed route through quiet residential streets. The proposed route follows on from concept designs produced by Sustrans in September 2023.

Specifically, we want to:

  • Provide more space for people to cycle, walk and wheel;
  • Improve the local environment and air quality;
  • Increase accessibility to local shops and services for all.

Have Your Say

We want to hear your experiences of walking, wheeling and cycling along and near to the proposed route so we can prioritise the areas that matter most to you.
Please answer these questions to help us understand how you currently use the route, and what improvements you would like to see.

The survey is open from noon on Monday 10 June and closes at 11:59pm on Sunday 21 July. Please click on this link to access the online survey.

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.
