£1.4 million project to improve Alton junction given the green light

Published by Grace Mcgachy at 6:00am 14th March 2020.

A £1.4 million project to upgrade a key Alton junction has been given the green light and work is due to start later this year. 

Work to improve the junction of Anstey Road/Anstey Lane including traffic lights and a pedestrian crossing, should begin in the summer and be completed by autumn 2020. 

Anstey Road is the main eastern route of access between the Alton town centre and the A31 but it often experiences delays during rush hour, leading to queues on both Anstey Road and Anstey Lane. 

Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader of Hampshire County Council and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, gave the go ahead for the scheme at a recent decision day: 

"This scheme will deliver a much-needed upgrade to the junction by introducing traffic signal control and additional carriageway width to better manage the flows of turning traffic.

"These improvements will increase the capacity of the junction and will provide signalised pedestrian crossing facilities and improved provision for cyclists.”
