Residents are being urged to comment on two new proposed cycle link schemes in the borough - one in Eastleigh town centre and one on Bursledon Road. Both schemes are being brought forward by Hampshire County Council.
Eastleigh Town Centre Cycle Route
These proposals aim to improve the route from Wide Lane via Desborough Road into Eastleigh town centre. The improvements will include both new and enhanced provision for cyclists and pedestrians in addition to connecting existing cycle and pedestrian infrastructure. The aim of this scheme is to improve, walking and cycling for those travelling between Southampton and Eastleigh. A key aim of this scheme is to encourage people to leave the car at home and either walk or cycle as a first choice of local travel.
The Eastleigh Town Centre Cycle Route feedback survey is now open and closes just before midnight on 20 August 2021.
Bursledon Road Cycle Link Improvements
These proposals aim to improve the route along Bursledon Road from Windhover roundabout to Botley Road. They will improve the existing shared use cycle route on the southern side of Bursledon Road between Windhover roundabout and Botley Road on the A3024, improving cycle connectivity in the area.
This scheme will enhance the cycling link along the A3024 together with cycle improvements in the locality including crossing improvements and repositioned lighting columns and improved signage for the route.
This scheme will connect Bursledon Road to existing cycle and pedestrian infrastructure and will help to encourage people to either or walk or cycle as their first choice of local travel.
The Bursledon Road Improvements feedback survey is now open closes just before midnight 5 August 2021.
