Winchester City Council Approves Movement Strategy

The document, which sets out the future vision for getting around the city was approved by city councillors and includes plans to:

  • Increase capacity for park and ride services;
  • Give buses priority over cars through measures such as bus gates in Southgate Street and Chesil Street, and bus lanes on Andover Road;
  • Consolidate parking in larger out-of-city-centre car parks rather than increasing city centre spaces;
  • Enhance cycling and pedestrian routes across the city with a “reallocation of road space along the full length of North Walls”; and
  • Change parts of the one-way system.

In the short term, £500,000 has been set aside for the strategy, which will go towards implementing bus priority measures, increasing park and ride capacity to up to 3,000 spaces and improving cycling and pedestrian spaces in the city.

Winchester Traffic

The strategy will help to encourage the uptake of sustainable transport modes and reduce traffic within the city centre. For more information on the Winchester Movement Strategy, please visit:
