September 2023: Cranbury Road/Station Road Junction 

The first scheme within Eastern Quietway will be progressing at the Cranbury Road/Station Road junction, with some minor works at the adjacent Porchester Road junction. We will be adding a new zebra crossing on Station Road to improve pedestrian access to and from Sholing Rail Station, as well as a new pedestrian island at the junction of Cranbury Road and Station Road. The vehicle exit from Cranbury Road to Station Road will change to left-turn only, which will improve safety and make it easier to cross Cranbury Road.

These works have now been completed and before and after photos can be seen on the Completed Improvements page.


Project Details

The proposed scheme will deliver a range of traffic calming and safety measures, pedestrian and cycling improvements such as zebra crossings and dropped kerbs. This is a designated route between Miller’s Pond and the Itchen Bridge for people travelling by bike or on foot as an alternative to Portsmouth Road.

Works proposed include a raised table across the junction with Manor Road South and improved dropped kerbs on pavements. Widening of the eastern footway on Manor Road South and conversion to shared use. Upgrade of the existing crossing at Portsmouth Road. Raised table at the junction of Porchester Road and Station Road and reconfigure cycle access. Raised table across the junction of Cranbury Road and Spring Road at the boundary of the 20mph zone. Parallel zebra crossing north and south of the junction between Spring Road and Station Road. Zebra crossing outside Sholing Station, facilitated by banning right turns from Cranbury Road onto Station Road. and buildouts incorporating dropped kerbs at the entrance to Miller's P to sow traffic and improve crossing safety.

All of the measures featured in the consultation are now being progressed to detailed design stage. Feedback from the survey has been incorporated into the designs, and schemes will be further assessed for viability based on various factors including cost, utilities investigations and legal Traffic Regulation Order consultations.
