County Council calls for feedback on Hamble Lane proposals

Hampshire County Council is asking residents what they think of proposals to improve people’s journeys on Hamble Lane

Sep 6 2018

Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “With Highways England’s planned improvements at Junction 8 of the M27 and Windhover Roundabout, we’ve been looking at opportunities to reduce traffic congestion on Hamble Lane.  Following an initial consultation with local residents at the end of last year, we’re now in a position to show people designs for a preferred scheme.

“We’re holding three information events where people have the opportunity to see the proposals and discuss them in detail.  We very much want to hear what local people think, so please come along if you can or have a look at the information and fill out the survey online.”

Hampshire County Council is inviting residents’ and stakeholders’ views on a preferred improvement scheme for the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane.

The public information events are being held on:

  • Wednesday 12 September 2pm to 7.30pm
    • Abbey Hall, Victoria Road, Netley, SO31 5FA.
  • Tuesday 25 September 1.30pm to 7.30pm
    • Hamble Village Memorial Hall, High Street, Hamble-le-Rice. SO31 4JE.
  • Monday 1 October 1.30pm to 7.30pm
    • Pilands Wood Centre, Chamberlayne Road, Bursledon, SO31 8DT.

The proposed scheme focusses on the northern section of Hamble Lane between Windhover Roundabout and the Pound Road junction.

It also looks at complementary measures on the wider network and further south on Hamble Lane. The County Council is also reviewing opportunities to reduce traffic on Hamble Lane by looking at ways to improve people’s travel choices across the Hamble Peninsula. At peak times, junctions on Hamble Lane are at maximum capacity, which can cause severe journey time delays for residents and commuters.

The survey will close at 11:59pm on Sunday 14 October 2018.
