And not only for East Hampshire residents
Don’t forget the rest of us along the A3 / A3(M) corridor
This article highlights the impact to residents all the way down to Bedhampton.
Like wind and water, motorists will always take the path of least resistance. Surely it would have been obvious to the planners and the developers what would happen. If they had carried out surveys across the area they would have determined that many vehicles were using the A3 as a quicker route to offset the extra mileage. Once the reason for that diversion was removed then it was a dead cert that the traffic would take the shortest distance once more.
Once again it is the local residents that pay the price for the short sightedness of the planning fraternity.
