Ipley Crossroads

Ipley Crossroads

On a road out of Marchwood, towards Beaulieu, you will pass through a crossroads at a place called Ipley.

It’s a strange crossroads because, although there is an unobstructed view on all approaches, with clear signage, it has been the scene of many accidents, including the death of a cyclist.

A Marchwood resident has sent me a suggestion as to how this junction could be re-designed to make it much safer. I reproduce it here, (with his permission).

I think this is an excellent idea and will very likely make it a lot safer in that vehicles, not on the main road, will be forced to come to a halt.

I have passed this onto the Highways Manager at Hampshire County Council, asking that they consider the idea.

This looks to be quite a smart energy capturing idea. Perhaps a line of these on roads approaching Rushington roundabout, leading to discounted energy bills for people living in Eling, Hounsdown, Rushington and Ashurst Bridge? Energy from the gridlock.

Police slam ‘not local’ visitors amid packed New Forest car parks during lockdown

WHAT DOES THIS TELL US? It is certainly true that a lot of local New Forest car parks were full to capacity over the weekend. However, I would bet that most of the cars were owned by local people rather than visitors from Guildford or beyond. What lesson can be learned from this? I think…
