Hamble Lane Improvements

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

Last update: February 2019

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.

Background Information

First public consultation

The first public consultation closed on 7 January 2018. A total of 673 individual responses were received. 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 approved by the County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport at his Decision Day on 17 July 2018.  Full details are available online (agenda item 4).

Second 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 preferred scheme includes on-line widening and junction improvements to the northern section of Hamble Lane between Windhover Roundabout and the Lowford Hill junction, plus complimentary junction improvements on the wider network and improvements to pedestrian and cycle provision between Hamble Rail Station and Hamble village. 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, through the development of a Travel Plan for Hamble.

A public consultation on the preferred scheme took place during September and October 2018, with the results due to be reported in March 2019.
