Mill Road Summer

Bridge Closed Street Open!

From Monday, 1 July until Sunday, 25 August, the Mill Road bridge will be closed to motor vehicles while works are completed on the railway, the train line and the Chisholm Trail. Following local campaigning efforts, Govia Thameslink and Network Rail have agreed to maintain access for pedestrians (and wheeled cycles) for most of the closure, but there will be some short periods of time when this temporary footbridge will also be closed. Stagecoach has committed to continuing bus services, with shuttle buses serving the areas on each side of the closed bridge. Details are still to be confirmed; we will update members when we know more.

The Romsey and Petersfield communities, including residents, businesses, councillors, and community groups including Mill Road Bridges, Over Mill Road Bridge, Campaign for Better Transport and Camcycle, are working together to ensure Mill Road thrives during this time with the Mill Road Summer festival. We will promote the events, activities, arts, entertainment, services and products that make Mill Road so special and we’re hoping to organise a few exciting new things too, including parklets, live music, street art and open-air cinemas (in the middle of the road no less).

Email us now to register your event, activity, community group, special promotion or great idea.

Mill Road Summer also needs more volunteers so please get in touch (millroadsummer@gmail.com) if you can help with activities like leaflet delivery, event planning or if you can share your special talents in music, performing, art or craft.
