Overview

The Whitehill & Bordon transport delivery strategy has been designed to help support the wider regeneration of the town. The transport delivery strategy comprises the following elements;

  • Whitehill & Bordon Integration Project
  • Green Grid Green Loop (in partnership with East Hants District Council)
  • Junction mitigation measures on the surrounding road network
  • Traffic management measures in surrounding communities 
  • Whitehill & Bordon Relief Road
  • Passenger Transport
Green Grid / Green Loop
An impact of traffic dominance in the town centre are perceptions that the roads are dangerous for walking and cycling.  Analysis of collisions data suggests that reality matches perceptions, with a high occurrence of Personal Injury Collisions (PICs).  Data over the five-year period from 2012-2017 shows that the main collision hot-spots are along Camp Road / High Street / Petersfield Road and a high proportion of casualties are pedestrians and cyclists.
Hampshire County Council is working in partnership with East Hants District Council to implement the Green Grid / Green Loop pedestrian and cycle network around the town.

This is proposed to;
  • Knit together the existing and new areas of town – creating easier access that better integrates new developments with established settlements and creating a more cohesive townscape;
  • Ensure that the anticipated traffic reductions along the high street is translated into increased capacity to accommodate planned growth in housing and jobs;
  • Make the town an attractive place to relocate;
  • Support better health by enabling active travel (more walking and cycling); and
  • Enable sustainable growth by promoting sustainable travel.

Please view the location plan of Whitehill and Bordon Sustainable Transport Improvements Package.

A link from Ennerdale Road to the relocated Mill Chase Academy is planned for completion by end of October 2019.  This will be the first of many links to connect existing pedestrian and cycle facilities in the town, with further works planned over the next few years as and when funding is made available.

Whitehill & Bordon Integration Project

The “Whitehill & Bordon Integration Project” is a collection of transport schemes planned to be introduced over a number of years, as funding allows. The plans include a package of transport measures to support Whitehill & Bordon’s regeneration into a Green and Healthy Town, such as:

  • widening footways to provide more and safer routes for pedestrians and cyclists;
  • providing more safer crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists;
  • making it easy for existing residents to access the new facilities; and
  • reducing traffic speeds in key locations such as the entrance to the new town centre. 

A public consultation ran from 13 July 2018 and ended at midnight on 9 September 2018 to which the County Council invited Whitehill & Bordon residents and businesses to comment on proposals designed to improve how people can travel around the town now the new relief road is open.

The results are presented in this report  and you can still view the information leaflet and exhibition plans .

The Integration Project covers; C114 (old A325), Budds Lane, Chalet Hill, Station Road and Hogmoor Road. These roads are viewed by the Development Partners as equally important links that are also in need of treatment to ensure that they can perform the role / function required of them as part of the regeneration of Whitehill & Bordon into a green and healthy town.

Relief Road

Hampshire County Council has completed phase two of the Relief Road, the new A325, which is a two mile section south of phase one. This £20 million major scheme now joins up with phase one (Louisburg Avenue), to create the new Relief Road to the west of the area, with a dedicated path for pedestrians and cyclists.

Please see further details of the Whitehill and Bordon Relief Road here.

Passenger Transport

Discussions are ongoing with the Development Partners to develop a passenger transport strategy that meets the needs of Whitehill & Bordon.
Updates on this project will be provided in due course.
