Consultation to start on Hook transport improvements
Monday, 21 May 2012
Hampshire County Council is giving residents the opportunity to comment on cycling and walking improvements proposed for Hook.
The proposals aim to improve the community's ability to walk and cycle to key facilities in Hook, particularly those travelling along the A30 and to Hook village centre.
Executive Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Mel Kendal said "We would like to hear the views of as many people as possible, on the cycling and walking improvement proposals for Hook. The public consultation will give Hook's residents the opportunity to comment on the improvement proposals and help us to develop the proposed schemes further to ensure they really benefit the local community."
Among the proposed improvements ...
The proposed improvements include a shared use cycle and pedestrian path along the southern side of the A30 from Holt Lane to Hartlett's Park, crossing improvements in the village centre and at Griffin Way/A30 roundabout and an improved cycle and pedestrian route between Hook rail station, Holt Lane and Hook Business Park. In addition, the consultation will also seek views on the option to develop a cycle route between Hook and Hartley Wintney.
Where can you view the proposals?
Plans of the improvement proposals will be available to view online and at Hook Parish Council offices from 21 May 2012 until 3 June 2012. A comments form will also be available for residents to provide feedback on the proposals.
The walking and cycling improvement proposals, which are funded entirely by developer contributions, have been developed in liaison with Hook Parish Council and local district and county councillors.
