Walking and Cycling
Hayling Billy Trail
At Pebble Walk your new home is located adjacent to the Hayling Billy Trail. This trail uses the Hayling Billy Coastal Path which runs along the west coast of Hayling Island. It is a permissive route which is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
The route runs between Sinah Lane and Havant Road (opposite the Applegreen Service Station).

Why take the bus?
- The walk to and from the bus stop is a great way to incorporate some physical activity into your daily routine.
- It gives you time to relax and read a book or use the free wi-fi whilst you travel to your destination.
- Season tickets offer unlimited travel on services and can prove cheaper than running a car.
Where to catch the bus:
The nearest bus stops for the 30 and 31 service are located at ‘Station Theatre’ bus stop found just south of the development on Sinah Lane.
The local area is served by the 30 and 31 Stagecoach bus service which both operate a circular route from Havant around Hayling Island and back to Havant. These services runs every 30 minutes Monday – Saturday and hourly on Sundays.
Regular bus services mean that Pebble Walk has excellent links to facilities and services in the surrounding area.
Havant Railway Station is located approximately 8km north of your home at Pebble Walk. The stop is accessible via a 25-minute cycle ride or a 30-minute journey on the Stagecoach 31 bus service.
The station is operated by South Western Railways. Services from Havant run regularly to London Waterloo, Brighton, Portsmouth and Southsea and Southampton Central.
Journeys to London Waterloo take approximately 1h 25 minutes, to Brighton 1h 10 minutes to Portsmouth and Southsea 15 minutes and Southampton Central 41 minutes.

Using rail services as your chosen mode of transport is a great way of reaching your end destination via a stress and traffic free journey. You would no longer need to worry about parking or paying for petrol. It also provides you with a number of money saving opportunities from the multiple travel cards available for you and your family.
Still need to drive your own car? Fear not. You can still become more sustainable by following these sustainable driving techniques:
- Remove unnecessary weight from your car such as roof racks or boxes
- Avoid breaking and accelerating hard by diving smoothly
- Limit the use of your air conditioning
- Check your tyres are fully inflated
- Stick to the speed limit – Speeding often leads to higher fuel consumption
Car sharing is a simple way of cutting the cost of fuel and parking, reducing congestion and pollution and cutting the stress of driving. Liftshare have created a webpage to enable you to register your journey and search to find other drivers who are making the same journey a you, potentially finding a car-share match straight away!
