Upgrade to Basingstoke’s A33 / Thornhill Way junction on target for completion

Work on Hampshire County Council’s scheme to improve traffic flow and journey times on the A33, at its junction with Thornhill Way and Lillymill Chine, is nearing completion

Jun 26 2019

Switch on of the new low energy traffic signal system will take place on Wednesday 26th June, and the final items of work are on target to be finished before the end of the month. 

Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader of Hampshire County Council and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said: “These works involved localised widening to allow the traffic signals to give additional time to the A33 to improve traffic flows and reduce journey times on this important arterial route. New lower voltage traffic signals have also been installed and the road surfaced renewed to help save energy and improve network resilience. 
“The A33 corridor is a key strategic route for Basingstoke, providing a link between A339 Ringway, the M4 and Reading. These works have been designed, delivered and resourced by Hampshire County Council with funding support from the EM3 Local Enterprise Partnership.”

This £1.35 million scheme is a further stage in Hampshire County Council’s on-going major access improvement programme to increase capacity and reduce congestion on the A33 in Basingstoke.
