Hampshire County Council is running a public consultation on a proposal to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities at the Weyhill Road junction with The Avenue, Andover – and want your opinion.
The proposal is to install two pedestrian refuge islands on Weyhill Road on either side of the junction with The Avenue to help people cross the road safely. It has been suggested that a signal controlled crossing be installed.
Hampshire County Council said: “The County Council’s established criteria for installing a signal controlled crossing was not met at this location. It is therefore the aim of this scheme to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities on Weyhill Road at its junction with The Avenue by means other than a controlled crossing.”
The survey (as at 26th September) has a single question with a Yes / No response and space for comments – the question being “Do you support the proposal to install the two pedestrian refuge islands on Weyhill road?”
A campaign was setup last year to improve safety at the junction with the @SaferCrossing Twitter account.
