Natural England Coastal Delivery Team have published their interim proposals aimed at improving public access by foot along the coast from Gosport to Portsmouth.
Beginning at Portway the proposed route will align along the pavements of Southampton Rd and Western Road to Hilsea Lido, where it will follow the Pilgrims Trail along the waterfront towards the Mountbatten Centre. The dark blue line on the map show the route proposed.
There is an associated Coastal Margin which provides for public access. This includes the adopted roads running through the Port Solent Estate.
