Safety on the Lymington Road Hampshire border

Safety on the Lymington Road Hampshire border

Reduce the speed limit on A337 at the border of Dorset and Hampshire. Additionally widen the pavement area at the corner of the A337 due to the difficulty in navigating if you are walking dogs or have children

Why is this important?

This is an accident/fatality waiting to happen. The speed limit is 40mph which is often exceeded. Several times cars have broken through the fenced border of Chewton Glenn. The pathway is extremely narrow at the bend approaching Hobourne site. There is no other way to walk across this boundary from Barton on Sea to Highcliffe. This is now a particular problem as Hobourne is/has closed off the cliff walk access to members of the public.
