Woolmer Way Junction Improvements - Whitehill and Bordon

Last update: August 2021

Latest Update
Works are completed and the permanent lights switched on 15 July 2021.
Scheme Overview

This junction improvement will provide cycle and pedestrian crossing facilities for people using the existing shared use cycle routes on C114 High Street and Woolmer Road, providing an alternative to the car for short local journeys to work, local services or school.

The scheme will include:

  • Improvements to the existing C114 High Street / Woolmer Way traffic signal junction including upgrading of existing pedestrian crossings to toucan crossings;
  • A new additional crossing at the northern arm of the signalised junction;
  • Widened footways and increased splitter islands to cater for cyclists;
  • Dropped crossing upgrades and drainage;
  • Removal of the left-turn filter lane on the southbound approach to create an adequate width of shared use path to enable cyclists from the Chalet Hill direction to exit the carriageway and for cyclists to cross the junction with minimal impact on traffic movements; and
  • Removal of the crossing island in Woolmer Way, eastbound approach, due to the narrowing of the junction to cater for the widened cycle facility. Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to cross within the signal junction phasing.

Works started on-site in March 2021 with a planned completion in Summer 2021 and is funded by the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership and developer contributions.
