Winchester & Chandler's Ford MP Steve Brine is working local representatives and residents after hearing how Hiltingbury Road has been the scene of a number of accidents in recent months.
The MP visited the area recently (pictured, right) to discuss optionsfor improving road safety with local Borough councillor Judith Grajewski and Parish Council Chairman, Margaret Atkinson.
Steve says; "I often drive down Hiltingbury Road and know all too well that the combination of traffic volume, speed, inconsiderate parking and the sheer number of pedestrians can create difficult conditions at busy times.
"Hampshire County Council has already provided extra signage and islands to slow down traffic and help with crossing the road but I will be asking the local council to look again at traffic regulation orders along the road and asking the police for their help with anti-social parking and speeding. I also want to encourage all local schools to take up the County Council's Streets Ahead pedestrian training and Junior Road Safety Officer initiatives to help our schoolchildren stay safe."
