Bishops Waltham TRO 2022

Closed 27 Jul 2022

Opened 29 Jun 2022

Overview

Winchester City Council as agents for Hampshire County Council proposes making a new road Traffic Regulation Order. The effect of this order will be to:

  • introduce parking restrictions in the roads surrounding the Infant and Junior Schools
  • amend some of the parking restrictions on the High Street
  • introduce no waiting at any time restrictions at the junction of The Avenue and Winchester Road B2177.

Infant and Junior Schools proposals would introduce:

  • no waiting at any time restrictions at junctions on Oak Road, Oak Road Spur, Pine Road, Elm Road, Willow Road
  • no waiting at any time restrictions on the bend in Oak Road and on the southern section of Pine Road
  • no waiting Monday – Friday 8am – 4pm in Oak Road and Pine Road
  • formalise the no stopping at any time restriction by the Infant School vehicle access

High Street proposals would:

  • introduce parking bays (a disabled bay, a 20 minute limited waiting bay, a good vehicle loading bay) on the western side at the top (one way southwards section)
  • introduce a disabled bay in the existing 30 minute limited waiting bays, on both sides of the road, at the bottom (St Georges St end)
  • introduce a no loading at any time restriction from Bank Street to a point approximately 13 metres south of Cross Street, and into Cross Street to keep the junctions clear of obstruction.

The Avenue proposals would introduce no waiting at any time restrictions at the junction with Winchester Road, formalising the existing white line markings at this junction.

The new restrictions are being proposed to improve visibility, reduce obstruction and damage to property, and to make the road safer for pedestrians and school children.
