A Better Connected South Hampshire: LSTF project

March 2015: Project update

The documents below provide an update on progress in delivering the Better Connected South Hampshire LSTF project.

2012/13 Highlight Report

May 2014

The Better Connected South Hampshire project aims to reduce the negative impact of traffic, make it easier for people to get to local employment, and improve air quality.

Helping people choose different ways to travel – particularly on shorter journeys – can save them money as well as having health benefits; reducing traffic on the roads means people and goods can move around more easily and this, in turn, can improve employment prospects as companies see south Hampshire as a great place to establish and grow a business. This report highlights some of the great work completed during the first year of funding.
