Local Whiteley residents, supported by Whiteley & Shedfield Liberal Democrat campaigners, Sudhakar Achwal, Anne Small and Viv Achwal, are campaigning to stop Conservative proposals to change the Whiteley Way into the A3051.
Fareham Conservative Council Leader, Sean Woodward, who is also a County Councillor and member of the North Whiteley Forum, said in a recent Facebook post:
As for Whiteley Way - when it is opened (predicted this summer) I have had a longstanding ambition to see it designated as the A3051. That would mean Botley Road through Park Gate, Swanwick and Burridge could be downgraded and that would enable the possibility of traffic calming to slow the traffic down.
This would transform North Whiteley for the worse with congestion and pollution outside our doors.
Please back our campaign against their plans.
We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the proposal to change Whiteley Way into the A3051. We don't need more traffic and trucks through our community.
