Beech Parish Council asked Hampshire Highways to submit proposals for additional traffic calming measures that could be funded under Hampshire County Council’s Community Funding Initiative.
Below are details of the works, that would cost the Parish Council an estimated £1949, we would very much like to hear the views of Beech residents by either using the email form below, or by contacting our Parish Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 01420 562130, or by writing to Mrs Louisa Thomson – Parish Clerk, Old Stables, Wield Road, Medstead, Hampshire, GU34 5NJ.
The closing date for comments is 12th November 2018.
30mph Repeater Signs
The Road Traffic Act does not permit the use of 30mph speed limit repeater signs on lit roads, this also includes painted speed limits on the road surface, meaning these cannot be used on Medstead Road, Kings Hill or Welhouse Road.
20mph Speed Limit
The Parish Council has unsuccessfully applied for a 20mph speed limit on Medstead Road and Kings Hill, currently there is a moratorium on new 20mph speed limit areas from being created in Hampshire.
- Creation of virtual footways (road narrowing), on Kings Hill and a section of Medstead Road adjacent to the woods, additional pedestrian signing including some additional SLOWS.
- 150mm edge of carriageways lining throughout the village.
- “Unsuitable For HGVs” signage at the entrance to the village from the A339 and the entrance to Wellhouse Road from Medstead Road.
- A request to the Police to reposition and provide two additional “Speed Camera” signs, these are supplied and located at the discretion of the Police not HCC or Beech Parish Council.
