Roadworks - S278 Scheme (Brickyards Plantation - Pale Lane)

During 2018, work took place to revise the junction where Pale Lane meets the A323 Fleet Road, outside the parish boundary. After work commenced there was a long delay when a high voltage cable was found, and also there were errors in the drawings. The work was finally completed by the end of the year.

However, motorists turning into Pale Lane from the Fleet direction have lost the deceleration lane, and face an awkward turn into the lane. Winchfield Parish Council has made strong representations to Hampshire Highways for further work to be done at the junction.

Winchfield Parish Council lodged their concerns, in a letter dated 24 January 2019, to Stuart Jarvis, Director of Economy, Transport & Environment at Hampshire County Council. The response to those concerns, dated 25 February, was discussed at the Parish Council meeting held on Monday, 25 March. For your information, the full response is here.

 

50mph LIMIT ON B3016. Speed limit signs were put up on the B3016 Hartley Wintney to Odiham road on October 14, 2016. This came after more than 30 years of campaigning by residents and the parish council, but the limit stops for drivers from the Hartley Wintney direction just after the Beauclerk Green turning and therefore before the dangerous bend outside Dignity pet crematorium where a number of accidents have happened.

The issue was raised by residents at the Annual Parish Assembly on May 22, 2017, and the parish council agreed it will continue to ask the authorities to extend the limit.

Unfortunately, on the morning of Wednesday, January 10, 2018, there was a serious accident at the entrance to the pet crematorium involving a motorcycle and a car. All the emergency services attended and the 21-year-old motorcyclist was taken by air ambulance to St George's Hospital at Tooting.
