Isle of Wight is an island that has approximately 391 km of classified roads. Four wheelers are the most important vehicular transport used by the residents of the island. There are more than 50,000 privately registered four wheelers (cars and vans) in use…
Around 3.6% employed personnel use bicycle as a mode of transportation.
The Local Transport Plan (LTP) has made broad arrangements to cope the problems in tourism, Island's environment, road traffic, safety, health, education, transportation, economy and employment. The roads in Isle of Wight are unstable due to coastal erosion and frequent landslips that require maintenance every then and now. There are many incidents where routes leading certain roads were shutdown due to landslips and coastal erosion.
The western end of A3055 military road is unstable due to coastal erosion and slippages that create havoc to the traffic. Due to landslip, Public Footpath C34 Whale Chine that is located 170 meters south of A3055 military road to the beach will remain closed until 21st November 2009. There is no alternative route.
Due to landslip, Public Footpath NT48, NT49, NT50, NT51 and V124 will be closed until 21st November 2009. Diversion route: A3055 Under cliff Drive. The structures of the Island's roads were not specifically designed to match the present vehicular traffic. Every now and then the roads have to go through maintenance.
