Is it poss to correct SatNav routes closed to vehicles?
Hi! We're at PO14 4NS, at the bottom end of Brownwich Lane, Titchfield, Fareham, but none of the satnav systems show how to get there.
Most systems take drivers to Chilling Barn, Hook Lane, Fareham, SO31 9HF Grid Ref SU509042, where the road ends in a locked-gate cart track (to HCC owned farmland) and with just a dirt track for cyclists, riders and walkers then running east between fields in the direction of Brownwich Lane. It's impossible for vehicles to use it. Is it possible to show that this cart track cannot form part of a route, please?
To make it even trickier, Brownwich Lane itself exists in two halves, becoming impassable halfway down. At the top, Brownwich Lane starts at Common Lane at Grid Ref SU528056, PO14 4BU. This upper end then runs south, through PO14 4NZ, PO14 4NY and PO14 4NX, until Grid Ref SU525043 where the track disintegrates and becomes impassable. This break in the Lane is not shown on sat nav systems.
Further south, Brownwich Lane starts up again, but is accessed by a track coming in from Meon Road, at Grid Ref SU529038, PO14 4HH, and running west to meet Brownwich Lane at a T-junction, Grid Ref SU523039, PO14 4NU. None of the sat nav systems show that this is how you have to come. Brownwich Lane then continues south, serving PO14 4NT and PO14 4NS.
