South Marston Transport Report – Final

Here you can find links to the Village Transport and Traffic Working Paper produced by the Borough’s consultants JMP Ltd.

It sets out the existing problems with traffic in the village and suggests options for improving footpaths at Pound Corner and the Thornhill Road bend area and controlling traffic speed. It does NOT cover traffic flow issues for an expanded village under the EDA which will be covered by a separate excercise. The approach is to improve pedestrian access and safety rather than improve traffic movements.

If you have any feelings/preferences to the proposals made below, then take the opportunity to share them by leaving a comment against this Blog Post.
