Avenue Road, Freshwater

This page will contain information on the scheme to upgrade Avenue Road in Freshwater. The project includes the reconstruction and resurfacing of the highway and also the creation of other improvements to the streetscene including several pedestrian crossing points.


The scheme by Island Roads in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council and Freshwater Parish Council will see the reconstruction and resurfacing of Avenue Road. The project also involves the resurfacing of the footway and also the creation of other improvements to the streetscene including a series of pedestrian crossing points.

The project is due to begin on September 11 and last approximately twelve weeks.

So the scheme can be udertaken as swiftly and safely as possible, vehicular access will be restricted during the project. The work however will be phased to minimise inconvenience and pedestrian access will be maintained. Access to Avenue Road car park will also be maintained during the scheme apart from three days at the end of the works when the section outside the car park will be resurfaced. This will be done at night and publicised in advance when the dates are confirmed.

To explain more about the project, Island Roads has held two information sessions in Freshwater Memorial Hall. The first was on Tuesday August 15 between noon and 4.30pm and the second on Monday August 21 between 4.30 and 7.30pm.

We would like to thank the businesses and residents who attended these sessions and hope they were informative. Several issues around traffic management during work were raised. We will look at these and respond either individually or in a section of Frequently Asked Questions we will be adding to this site shortly.

A letter explaining more about the scheme including information on waste collection arrangements during work has been sent to the residents and businesses most affected. A copy of the letter can be viewed here

You can also read details of the traffic management plans for each of the different phases as follows:

- phase 2

- phase 3
