Workplace travel planning remains a key part of the Havant Travel Impact Mitigation Study (March 2010) – Local Development...

Workplace travel planning remains a key part of the Havant Travel Impact Mitigation Study (March 2010) – Local Development Framework; and the lifting of the road barrier between Langstone Technology Park and Penner Road is key in fulfilling part of the strategy for long term transport sustainability.

The study highlighted Havant Borough Council’s leadership in changing attitudes towards workplace travel and included measures to encourage a modal shift from car to ‘greener’ transport options, initiated in the main as Scottish and Southern (SSE) at Penner Road was considering a 25% staff increase with no additional parking provision.

One of the many initiatives launched was to utilise some of the private sector investment in a commuter bus service – previously operated by Emsworth and District Bus and Coach Services. This was to encourage employees to use more sustainable means of transport and in turn improve links between the businesses in the Broadmarsh area.

Fasset has recently taken over this bus operation and whilst it is early days, the passenger numbers are up and this is in advance of a ‘Phase II’ marketing campaign due imminently. This service gives employees a reliable service taking them from the main Havant train station to their place of work between the hours of 7am to 8.30pm; making the option of leaving the car at home a real contender.

In addition, Fasset has invested £50k in opening up the Penner Road/Langstone Technology Park road barrier for the bus service, to further improve efficiencies and make the service even more attractive during peak hours. This barrier has never before been lifted and shows the commitment by Fasset not just in terms of monetary investment but also to make this bus link an efficient use of resource in boosting the business community in the Havant area.

Fasset is committed to promoting Havant as a real centre of enterprise and innovation and this is one of the investments we have made to help achieve this. This bus is a crucial link in building a sustainable supply chain along with infrastructure, employment and economic opportunities. The Broadmarsh business community is going from strength to strength and opening up this bus gate is further enabling this network to thrive.
