Access markings and dropped kerbs

H-bar access markings

H-bar access markings indicate that part of the carriageway should be kept clear of waiting vehicles to allow access to off-street premises or a private drive.  The markings are also used when a dropped kerb has been installed to provide a convenient crossing place for pedestrians.

Dropped kerb

To apply to have a dropped kerb installed on the road adjacent to your property you will need permission from Hampshire County Council.  You can also apply for an existing access to be widened.

Please note, if you have a dropped kerb outside your property and someone else has parked across it, you will need to contact us for advice.
