Hamble Lane Improvements

Hampshire County Council is currently developing proposals to improve people’s journeys in and out of Hamble

Last update: July 2018

Latest updates

Following the public consultation undertaken at the end of 2017, officers have evaluated all the feedback received and used this alongside transport modelling work to design a preferred scheme. A second public consultation exercise will now be undertaken in September and October 2018, to seek views on the preferred scheme and the prioritisation of different elements. Further details will be provided on this webpage in due course.

The latest report on the scheme was approved by the County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport at his Decision Day on the 17th July 2018. Full details can be found via the link below (Item 4. On the Agenda), but in summary this report provides the following:

  • Full details of the results of the first public consultation, plus officer responses to the key issues raised;
    An outline of the improvements proposed for adoption as part of the preferred scheme;
    Authority to undertake a second consultation exercise to seek views on the preferred scheme; and
    Authority to modify the preferred scheme if required following consultation and then progress it to detailed design.


Scheme overview

The County Council wants to improve the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane focusing on the northern section between Windhover Roundabout and the Pound Road junction, but also looking at complimentary measures on the wider network and further south on Hamble Lane. The County Council is also reviewing opportunities to reduce traffic on the 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 area covered by the scheme is shown on this plan

First public consultation

The first public consultation closed on Sunday 7 January 2018 and the exhibition planscan still be viewed. A total of 673 individual responses to the public consultation were received, and of these responses there were a total of 514 separate comments/suggestions in response to question 14 – ‘any further comments’. A full report detailing the outcomes from the first consultation and our responses to each of the key themes and topics that were identified by respondents was included as part of the report to the Executive Member in July 2018 and can be read here
