A33 Crockford and Binfields Roundabouts

Improvements at Crockford and Binfields roundabouts

Last update: February 2021

Latest update

The scheme is now complete. Traffic flow through the junctions has improved, and peak journey times reduced. Since the completion of the main works we have listened to people’s feedback and small changes to road markings, signage, pedestrian and cycle facilities have now been implemented.

Scheme overview

This scheme, planned, designed and carried out by the County Council has also had significant funding support from the Enterprise M3 LEP.  Hampshire County Council started work on 7 August 2017 to construct a £10.6 million package of highway improvements to increase capacity and help reduce congestion on the A33 in Basingstoke, between the Ringway and Binfields roundabouts.

Dyer & Butler was appointed as the County Council’s contractor to deliver the scheme. The works were programmed to last approximately 18 months and finished early in December 2018.

The scheme will help ease congestion in two of the major employment areas in Basingstoke, Chineham and Hampshire International Business Parks, as well as aid any potential expansions and future job creation.

Improvements at Crockford and Binfields Roundabouts included:

  • widening the existing approach roads
  • road widening works on the roundabout
  • installation of traffic signals on the roundabout
  • improved drainage system

In addition to the above, Hampshire County Council completed work on Ringway Roundabout. The completion of these works was deferred following discovery of mis-charted underground services, in order to ensure the works were competitively tendered.

Following completion of the works, the speed limit reductions will be removed. However, drivers are encouraged to maintain reduced speeds and take time to familiarise themselves with the new road layouts. We will continue to monitor the operation of the junction in the coming weeks and make minor adjustments if necessary.
