Hamble Lane bottleneck in Bursledon to be addressed by County Council

Following the announcement of Highways England’s plans to improve Junction 8 of the M27, Hampshire County Council is developing proposals to improve people’s journeys in and out of Hamble - and is inviting feedback from local residents and businesses.

Nov 17 2017

The County Council wishes to improve the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane, focusing on the northern section between Windhover Roundabout and the Pound Road junction - and is seeking opportunities to improve the southern section of the route, including looking at ways to increase travel choices. At peak times, sections of Hamble Lane are at maximum capacity which can cause severe delays to journey times for residents and commuters.

Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Rob Humby said: “We would like to engage with local people at this early stage, before work starts on developing proposals. By gaining a full understanding of the key issues, we can then put forward options that would make a positive impact and have the full support of the local community.”

“This project is being developed to complement the improvements being drawn up by Highways England at Junction 8 of the M27 and Windhover Roundabout. These enhancements were the subject of a recent public consultation in the area, with the aim of enabling traffic to flow smoothly around the whole area - now and in the future.”

The public consultation will run from Monday 27 November 2017, until Sunday 7 January 2018. The consultation material can be viewed on Hampshire County Council’s website at: www.hants.gov.uk/transportschemes (from 27 November).

There will also be three drop-in events for people to attend on:

• Monday 27 November from 1pm-7pm at Pilands Wood Centre, Chamberlayne Road,  Bursledon, SO31 8DT, and

• Thursday 7 December from 1pm-7pm at Roy Underdown Pavilion, Spitfire Way, Hamble-le-Rice, SO31 4RY.

• Wednesday 13 December from 1pm-7pm at Abbey Hall, Victoria Road, Netley SO31 5FA
