Question 18 - we asked:

Would you support two way cycling on one way streets north of Mill Road?

We asked this question only in Romsey.

3 of the 4 candidates (75%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Jane CARPENTER
(Green Party)

Whilst I do agree that in Panton Street a two-way cycle route would be effective I also feel that in North Romsey most streets are simply not wide enough to allow for two-way cycling. An exception to this might be Fairfax Road and that end of Ross Street up to the Romsey Recreation Ground.

Anna SMITH
(Labour Party)

Yes – as much as is practicable. Roads not wide enough for two-way cars and bikes may well be wide enough for two-way bikes and one-way cars, and, as the campaign document reminds us, there are sufficient passing places. It increases the ease of cycling and reduces overall congestion.

Donald Marshall ADEY
(Liberal Democrat)

On a street by street basis. Generally, yes, of course.
