This study summarises the work that has been completed to examine the benefits of introducing a link road through the proposed new neighbourhoods in West Parley, and the subsequent improvements resulting from the removal of turning traffic from the Parley Cross junction itself.
The Parley Cross Potential Junction Improvements Study provides part of the evidence base that supports policies FWP5, FWP6 and FWP7 of the draft Core Strategy Pre-Submission April 2012. These policies propose changes to the Parley Cross junction, the associated service roads and new link roads that could be provided through adjacent land proposed for development. This in turn could allow for a reduction in the total road area at the existing junction and provide an opportunity to significantly enhance the public realm around Parley Cross.
The study was undertaken by consultants WSP.
