Second-stage public consultation on proposals to improve journeys in and out of Hamble

Hampshire County Council is inviting residents’ and stakeholders’ views on a preferred improvement scheme for the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane.

This consultation opens on Monday 3 September 2018 and closes at 11:59pm on Sunday 14 October 2018.

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 complementary 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

Public consultation

After the initial public consultation at the end of 2017, all the feedback was received and evaluated alongside transport modelling work to design a preferred improvement scheme for the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane.

The proposed scheme focusses on the northern section of Hamble Lane between Windhover Roundabout and the Pound Road junction. It also looks at other measures on the wider network and further south on Hamble Lane. The County Council is also reviewing opportunities to reduce traffic on Hamble 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.

We want to hear your views on the preferred improvement scheme, the priority of the different elements of the scheme, and a draft Travel Plan Framework for the wider Hamble Peninsula.

The findings from the consultation will be published on this website and presented to the Executive Member for Environment and Transport, for consideration when making decisions, later in the year.
