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.
