In 2109 Crawley Parish Council began the process to install decorative gates on each of the four main entrances into the village. These installations are known to calm traffic speeds in rural locations and have been recommended by Winchester City Council and the Highways Authority. Licences were approved at the end of 2019.
A traffic assessment was undertaken in 2017 as below.
Speed studies were undertaken at the four gateways on the approaches into the village and also at four locations inside the village: at the Village Hall, the burial ground, The stretch of road beyond the steep hill and bend leaving the Village towards Littleton, and in Hacks Lane. The data collected can be summarised as follows.
At the gateways the volumes, average speeds and incidents of speeding are much higher. The fastest stretches of road are the routes in and out the Village towards Stockbridge and Littleton.
The traffic group are continuing to consider the data, and what measures could be taken to address any issues
