A bypass to divert traffic around the outskirts of Stubbington
Last update: November 2020
- Latest updates
Work is progressing on all existing routes using off peak temporary traffic signals as listed in the traffic management section below. This is to enable excavation work for public utility service diversions (water, gas, etc.), road widening and drainage work.
The large scale earthworks to form the new road, its drainage features, earth bunds, and foundations are continuing, which will see materials being moved and stockpiled, and lorry movements along the designated routes. The embankment on Titchfield Road near the A27 has been cut back and the ground reinforced. Work is ongoing to finish shaping the slope and to install drainage. The embankment is being covered using a textile matting to support the final soil and grass finish. Once the stabilisation work is complete, work at the base of the embankment can begin, including underground service diversions and road widening work.
The temporary extension to the working hours for some construction activities will continue in line with government guidance. These were extended in the summer to enable work between 8am and 9pm Monday to Saturday. To help reduce the impact of this change, the extended working hours are limited to the earthworks and associated operations, where the new road is being built to the east of the B3334 Titchfield Road towards Peak Lane, and east and south through Newlands Farm to the B3334 Gosport Road. This area includes the bulk of the weather dependent earthmoving operations and is more remote from residential and business properties. All other environmental and traffic constraints remain active.
- Scheme Overview
To help minimise traffic disruption, off peak lane closures, temporary traffic signals and 30mph speed limits are being utilised to control traffic and maintain safety for the public and the workforce. Off peak traffic signals will normally be operational between 9:30am and 3:30pm. Please be aware and allow extra time when planning your journey.
The routes with temporary traffic management include;
- A27 Titchfield Gyratory – off peak lane closures, temporary traffic signals instead of permanent;
- B3334 Titchfield Road – off peak daytime temporary traffic signals including 3-way temporary signals at the junction with Bridge Street;
- B3334 Gosport Road – off peak daytime temporary traffic signals;
- Peak Lane – off peak daytime temporary traffic signals.
Local public rights of way are open but local measures will be deployed to maintain safety.

Earlier work has involved the removal of trees and vegetation which, including the tidying and removal of cut materials from across the site, will be completed over the next few weeks. Once the construction work is able to progress and is sufficiently advanced, a landscape planting scheme will follow that provides approximately 530 specimen trees, 365 conifers, 8,000 grouped trees, and 19,000 whips as new and replacement hedging. This will be maintained for a 5 years after planting to help ensure it becomes fully established.

Stubbington bypass forms part of Hampshire's wider plan for improving access to Fareham and Gosport. As part of the plan some schemes have already been delivered including at the Newgate Lane corridor, the Peel Common roundabout, sections of the A27 between Segensworth to Titchfield and at The Avenue/Station Roundabout/Western Way.
- Planning application and Supporting Documents
