Members Statement - Hampton Roads


Thursday, 3 September 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):

Congratulations to the Hampton community.

We have had a huge community win and the Beach Road bottleneck near Small Street in Hampton will be fixed; 1200 Bayside residents signed a petition calling for a fix after identifying that the bottleneck was causing unnecessary delays and havoc in surrounding streets.

As Hampton resident John wrote to me: ‘Our amenity is diminished by the speeding cars, aggressive and distracted drivers, noise, pollution and safety concerns. Action needs to be taken urgently’.

This bottleneck fix will be a big win for the Hampton community.
