Read more about the bus turnaround drop-in event


One of the many proposed improvements to access and movement across the Alton estate is the relocation of the bus turnaround from Portswood Place to the area in front of Shalden House. This will conserve the historic parkland setting of Downshire Field, improve pedestrian movement along Danebury Avenue, and ease traffic flow through the estate and bring buses further into the estate.

The new turnaround will provide space for up to four buses to wait and an additional “running lane” to allow buses to pass safely. A new bus stop will also be created at Tunworth Crescent, and improved landscaping and screening will soften the interface between the new bus turnaround and Shaldon House.

On Tuesday 20th of November, the regeneration team and Redrow held a drop-in session at the Minstead Gardens Club Room. If you were not able to attend this event, you can download a copy of the exhibition boards:
