Transportation Overview

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

The Whitehill and Bordon Sustainable Transport Improvements Package comprises the following elements;

  • Whitehill & Bordon Integration Project
  • Green Grid Green Loop (in partnership with East Hants District Council)
  • Measures in surrounding communities to manage the traffic impacts of increased development and traffic use
  • Traffic management measures in surrounding communities 
  • Whitehill & Bordon Relief Road
  • Whitehill and Bordon Travel Plan
  • Passenger Transport
Green Grid / Green Loop

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.
Please view the GGGL existing and planned routes plan here.

These supplement the Integration Projects with an aim to;

  • Knit together the existing and new areas of town – creating easier access for non-motorised users that better integrates new developments with established settlements and creating a more cohesive townscape;
  • Support better health by enabling active travel (more walking and cycling);
  • Enable sustainable growth by promoting sustainable travel.

For more information regarding the GGGL schemes and their progress can be viewed here.

To compensate for tree loss a GGGL tree/shrub replanting scheme led by HCC arboriculture will follow on from scheme construction. The trees to be removed as part of the schemes will be replaced at a 2:1 ratio with new trees at a nearby or alternative location in collaboration with local representatives.

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.

  • 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.

In 2018 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

Relief Road/Travel Planning/Passenger Transport

A325 Relief Road

The road is a total length of about 2.6 miles (4.1km) and except for a short section of dual carriageway at the northern end comprises of a two-way single carriageway with separate provision for pedestrians and cyclists.
The road was designed and constructed in two phases at an overall cost of £27M funded in large part by HCC, Developer Contributions, Homes England and EM3 Local Enterprise Partnership and was opened in its entirety in January 2019.

Please more information regarding the A325 Relief Road can be viewed here.

Travel Planning

Hampshire Services Travel Planning Team has been appointed to develop and deliver a Community Travel Plan (CTP) for Whitehill and Bordon. This approach will result in a travel plan that includes both new and existing local residents, ensuring that everyone benefits from advice, support and initiatives that help them to travel more actively and sustainably.
The travel survey of the Insights work will inform the final development of the CTP and HCC will invest in future travel plan measures, prior to producing a Local Action Plan which will be dependent on survey results.

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.
