Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader of Hampshire County Council and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said: “Design work on the scheme has progressed since a public consultation event was held in September 2018. Investigation during the development of the scheme showed that the existing subway structures are sub-standard and are therefore too complex and costly to retain and maintain in future. 

“We are asking residents via an online survey for their feedback on the latest plans and we are very keen to get the views of people who regularly use the roundabout and in particular pedestrians and cyclists affected by this change.

“The improvements to Brighton Hill Roundabout will help ease congestion at busy times of day, improve safety and provide people with more opportunities to walk and cycle. Good infrastructure is vital to Hampshire’s economic prosperity, and these improvements on the A30 have been designed to make day to day travel easier for local residents and commuters.”

As well as increasing the capacity at this roundabout the County Council is looking to create a new link road through the adjacent Camrose site to alleviate traffic pressures on Brighton Hill. The proposed Camrose link road is subject to planning permission, and the combined schemes represent a £20 million investment in the local area. The Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership has allocated £13 million towards improvements to the Brighton Hill roundabout, as part of its Basingstoke South West Corridor to Growth scheme.

The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete and is available online for a three-week period from noon Wednesday 20 May until midnight Wednesday 10  June 2020.
