Details of the traffic calming measures that will be put in place to increase the safety of road users and pedestrians. These will be installed between 25 November 2013 and January 2014 and will include speed cushions, a toucan crossing, a heavy goods vehicle ban, pedestrian refuge islands, white lining improvements, crossing points, a 20mph speed limit and parking restrictions.
Here is a programme of works, although this can be subject to change. At present works to implement the toucan crossing on Yew Tree Drive have commenced, and the line markings on Swanwick Lane are to be altered imminently, although this work is extremely weather dependent. The construction of the pedestrian refuge on Swanwick Lane is programmed for 5 December, while works on the speed cushions is due to start on 12 December and implementation of the crossing points on Botley Road on 16 December.
Further details of the planned works can be found on the Hampshire County Council Transport & Road Improvement Schemes web pages under Access to Whiteley, or by clicking on the following link: http://www3.hants.gov.uk/transport-schemes-index/whiteley.htm

Swiss insurer Zurich Insurance has confirmed it will cut 94 jobs at its Whiteley offices. It said it was making organisational changes to its personal lines, car and home claims teams. It would also be simplifying its claim process. Zurich has its personal lines base at 3000 Park Way, will be moving its claims line to Endsleigh, a subsidiary company based in Cheltenham. The move is expected to happen from March 2014 onwards.
The senior management at the company has also changed, with its managing director John Dyke and UK personal lines claims director Jon Cawley announcing their intention to leave at the end of their year.
The company said it would be looking at redeploying people, offering voluntary redundancies and not replacing people after they leave.Add a comment Add a comment
