A £350,000 project to revamp a shopping parade has been completed.

Following four months of work, Hambledon Parade in Waterlooville has been given a new look.

The improvements include widening of the road to allow better two-way traffic flow within the parade.

Parking has been improved for the parade, which has more than 10 shops and is a hub for residents of Waterlooville and surrounding areas.

New paving and street furniture has also been installed, together with an improved pavement and cycleway route.

Councillor Tony Briggs, who is in charge of environment and neighbourhood quality at Havant Borough Council, said ‘The improvements to Hambledon Parade will allow local shoppers better vehicle access and easier parking.

‘This in turn will encourage residents to shop locally and support small businesses.’

The makeover was possible thanks to a cash injection of £352,000 from developers of the West of Waterlooville development.
