Hamble Lane Improvements

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

Last update: March 2018

Latest updates

Following the public consultation undertaken at the end of 2017 officers are now evaluating all the feedback received from the drop-in events and the questionnaires. This feedback will then be used, alongside transport modelling, to design a preferred scheme.

The 2017 consultation findings and the preferred scheme is due to be presented to Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport in June 2018, and will seek approval to undertake another round of public consultation in summer 2018. The second consultation will focus on the preferred scheme design, but will also present a list of all potential improvement measures that have been identified, including more details on    sustainable travel schemes for the Hamble peninsula.

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. The County Council is also seeking opportunities to improve the southern section of the route by looking at ways to improve people’s travel choices. 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.

Public consultation

At his Decision Day on 14 November 2017 the County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Rob Humby, gave approval to undertake a public consultation in Autumn 2017 on improvements to the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane, in order to seek views on the extent and nature of potential improvements, the potential for behaviour change when it comes to travel choices, wider travel-planning initiatives, and the preferred way forward.

The public consultation closed on Sunday 7 January 2018 and the Exhibition plans can 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 consultation and our responses to each of the key themes and topics that were identified by respondents will be included as part of the report to the Executive Member in June 2018.
