The new bypass forms a key part of Hampshire's wider plan for improving access to Fareham and Gosport.

Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader of Hampshire County Council and Executive Lead Member for Economy, Transport and Environment (left), met with Caroline Dinenage, MP for Gosport (pictured second from the right), on site for the visit. Joining them were Suella Braverman, MP for Fareham (pictured second from the left), and Councillor Seán Woodward, Leader of Fareham Borough Council (pictured far right).

The bypass will mark a total investment to date of nearly £100 million in road and transport improvements in the Fareham and Gosport areas, aimed at improving access to the Gosport Peninsula and the Solent Enterprise Zone (Daedalus). Work is expected to be completed in May 2022.

Hampshire County Council has also invested in the construction and recent extension of the Eclipse Busway, a dedicated bus and cycle only section highway route that runs parallel to the A32 between Gosport and Fareham, upgrades to Newgate Lane and Peel Common roundabouts and capacity improvements to the A27, all with significant funding support from the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership and the Department for Transport.
