Traffic information relating to Old Portsmouth and vicinity
The temporary closure of Unicorn Gate had not appeared to present any further difficulties to traffic.
The temporary closure of the Pedestrian Gate on the ‘Millennium Chain’ between the Wightlink Ferry Port and Gunwharf Quays Residential Area on Fridays and Saturdays between the hours of 12.30am and 4am was still being discussed between local representatives and the police. This was being considered in view of the threats to Wightlink staff ‘during the small hours’ busy periods.
The proposed walkway access plan from the Railway Station and Gunwharf Quays Shopping Area had been agreed in principle and was expected to be open by June 2009.
The date of the initiation of the 20mph maximum speed proposal within Old Portsmouth was not yet known but would be monitored
Disabled Parking Spaces in Old Portsmouth
The recent re-allocation of parking spaces has caused some problems to disabled personnel. FOOPA has contacted the Council on this issue but has been advised that the spaces are 'courtesy bays' only at present. However, as from the end of the year, their restriction to 'Blue Badge' holders will be possible under new powers. FOOPA will monitor situation.
