Speed Reduction Measures
Update as at 6th April 2021
The Parish Council approved the cost of the speed reduction measure in the 09 March meeting. We will be inviting the engineer to finalise the road sign requirements.
For a number of years, HPC has been trying to tackle the issue of speeding along the A343.
Over the past year, under the title of a Community Funded Initiative, we have collaborated with Hampshire County Council's transport division to implement speed reduction measures in Highclere.
As part of the budget for 2021/22 HPC has allocated spends of up to £15,000 to improve the speeding issues.
There are 4 locations along the A343 that have been highlighted by our HCC transport experts as appropriate for clearer and/or new signage.
Each location has been identified as potential for improved speed awareness measures
The road structure and appropriateness of the proposals are recommended by a senior transport engineer
Highclere PC can choose which measures to implement
We are currently at the stage to approve the proposed design changes. Please see the two attachments below for the proposed design as well as the quote.
Do you have any concerns regarding the cost or the designs that have been that you'd like HPC to be aware of?
If so, please contact us via the Clerk.
