A27 Segensworth Link - Eastern Footway

To provide a safe walking route from M27 Junction 9 to Segensworth roundabout and Whiteley

Last update: June 2024

Scheme overview

The completed major scheme M27 Junction 9 provides signalised crossing points and a new 3m wide footway from the northern end of the A27 Segensworth Link, across the M27 Junction 9 and along Whiteley Way, up to the Parkway South Roundabout.

The proposed scheme will extend the works undertaken at M27 Junction 9, by providing a new section of footway to link the pedestrian facilities recently installed at the M27 Junction 9, to the existing footway network at Segensworth Roundabout. On completion, the scheme will provide a continual footway connection to enable people to walk across the M27 Junction 9 between Segensworth and Whiteley. Construction of the new footway is dependent upon the outcome of discussions with Network Rail regarding work required to the existing bridge parapet over the Southampton - Portsmouth - London Victoria railway line, with dates to be confirmed.

The scheme also includes a reduction in the existing speed limit on the A27 Segensworth Link to 40mph to provide a safe environment for walking using the new link.

Specifically, we want to:

  • provide more space for people to walk
  • make the route safer for all road users
  • improve the local environment and air quality
  • increase accessibility to local shops and services for all.

In the interim, alternative safe walking routes for those wishing to travel between Parkway South Roundabout and Segensworth Roundabout are available using the existing footway network identified in this map.

Funding Arrangements
The North Whiteley major development area section 106 (s106) agreement secured as part of the planning permission granted for the development, included a financial contribution to improve local walking and cycling access between Segensworth and the new development. The agreement covered a range of works to be delivered, including a new footway adjacent to the A27 Segensworth Link.
