The scheme involves constructing an additional traffic lane on both M27 Junction 9 motorway off-slip roads, on the westbound on-slip road and on the Whiteley Way approach. The existing short left-turn lane on Whiteley Way will also be lengthened and additional lanes will be provided on the northern and southern sections of the roundabout. At Parkway South roundabout a new larger fully signal-controlled roundabout will be provided, with additional lanes on all approaches, on the Parkway exit road and on the roundabout itself.
Councillor Humby continued: “Junction 9 can be really busy during peak periods, particularly on the off-slip roads resulting in delays on the M27. With 3,500 extra homes planned in the north of Whiteley, its vital improvements are made so that people can access the leisure facilities, Solent Business Park and Segensworth Business Park. I would encourage people to come along and, as well as seeing our plans, provide us with local knowledge they may have, so we can deliver a scheme that is fit for purpose.”
The funding for this scheme is comprised of £6.6 million from Hampshire County Council, £9.9 million Highways England Growth and Housing Fund and £3 million Highways England Congestion Relief Fund.
