Works completed.

Scheme overview

Hampshire County Council has awarded Mildren Construction Ltd the contract to carry out the works from week commencing 11 February 2019.  The works will involve widening Thornhill Way to provide an additional right-turn lane, junction resurfacing and the renewal of the traffic signals. These changes will allow the traffic signals to be reconfigured to improve traffic flow and journey times for the A33.  

Background

The A33 corridor is a key strategic route for Basingstoke, providing a link between the A339 Ringway and the north east of Basingstoke, heading towards the M4 and Reading. This £1.35 million scheme is a further stage in Hampshire County Council’s on-going major improvements to increase capacity and reduce congestion on the A33 and forms part of the County Council's 'North East Corridor to Growth' package, submitted to the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership in September 2014.

Public consultation closed

In July 2015 there were three public exhibitions about these works and related major highway improvement works across Basingstoke. The consultation ran from 1 July to 13 August 2015. You can still view the exhibition document.

A total of 82 questionnaires were returned, with feedback being received on all the upcoming schemes in Basingstoke, as well as general feedback on the issues faced by Basingstoke as a whole.
