Church Crookham: gateway features and speed management
22 January 2016
To provide safe working, there will be a temporary daytime road closure of Beacon Hill Road between the hours of 9:30am to 4pm to allow for a new traffic island to be installed safely and speedily, with a diversion route along Sandy Lane and Aldershot Road. Rocon Contractors Ltd have been appointed to implement these works.
On 7 December 2015, there will be a road closure for one week to minimise disruption
Temporary traffic lights will be in place while the crossing is installed at the Aldershot Road site
Access to footways may sometimes be restricted, it is advisable to allow additional time for your journey
The site will be then be cleared for the Christmas period and any outstanding works, such as road markings or traffic signs, will be completed in January/February 2016.
Hampshire County Council and Church Crookham Parish Council are proposing to provide gateway features and improved pedestrian crossing facilities in the village.
The proposed new work includes:
- improved gateway features on both the B3013 Beacon Hill Road and Aldershot Road
- pedestrian crossing points on the B3013 Beacon Hill Road, and Aldershot Road
These features will improve accessibility at four locations in Church Crookham. The measures outlined were developed from a feasibility study and in consultation with the Parish Council and the community.
These features will help make traffic entering the village more aware of the reduced speed limit. The additional pedestrian crossing points provide improved facilities in appropriate locations. We hope this will encourage walking for local journeys as well as helping to maintain the village infrastructure and atmosphere for residents.
One option that cannot be taken forward at this stage is a pedestrian crossing at The Verne. We found that it was not feasible to install a pedestrian crossing at that location, because there is not enough space for the necessary traffic calming features (eg speed tables) that would be needed to provide a safe crossing there.
