A bypass to divert traffic around the outskirts of Stubbington
Last update: October 2021
- Latest updates
A temporary road closure on Bridge Street, Titchfield will come into operation from Monday 18 October 2021 for approximately 2 weeks. No vehicular access will be available between Bridge Street and Titchfield Road, except for pedestrians and cyclists, and access to properties on Bridge Street, and the Bridge street public car park will be from South Street, Titchfield only. Local signed diversions will be in place to divert traffic via the A27 Titchfield Gyratory, Southampton Road, St Margarets roundabout, Warsash Road, Common Lane, Coach Hill, and South Street in both directions.
The temporary road closure will be in place for 24 hours a day 7 days a week, over the two weeks and is required to enable completion of the essential upgrading of the drainage system at the junction of Bridge Street with Titchfield Road. The work will involve deep excavations so the road closure will help ensure the work can be undertaken safely.

- 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. On Gosport Road to allow for the morning school travel the temporary traffic signals are operating from 9am. Where activity cannot be completed in a day it will be necessary to utilise temporary 24 hour traffic signals, such as for public utility (water, gas, etc.) service diversions to maintain supplies, which will where possible be notified in advance. Please be aware and allow extra time when planning your journey.
Unless referred to in the above, the routes with temporary traffic management include;
- A27 Titchfield Gyratory – off peak lane closures;
- B3334 Titchfield Road – off peak daytime temporary traffic including item below;
- B3334 Titchfield Road – junction with Bridge Street – 24 hour/7days a week 3-way temporary signals;
- B3334 Gosport Road – off peak daytime temporary traffic signals;
- Peak Lane – 24 hour/7 days a week temporary traffic signals reverting to off peak daytime temporary traffic signals from late July.
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.
’Meet the Contractor’ EventThis joint public event hosted by Hampshire County Council and BAM Nuttall Ltd., was held on Tuesday 21st January between 1pm and 7pm and was attended by approximately 400 local people. The information presented at the event can be viewed hereand the Stubbington 3D Visualisation.
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
The planning application for the scheme was submitted to the County Council in July 2015 and planning permission was granted (subject to conditions) in October 2015 - view the application details.
The temporary extension to the working hours for some construction activities will continue in line with government guidance. These have been extended to enable work between 8am and 9pm Monday to Saturday. To help reduce any impact of this change, the extended working hours are limited to those areas of the scheme that are more remote from residential and business properties. All other environmental and traffic constraints remain active.
- Results of the public consultation
The public consultation exercise ended on 4 July 2014. 75% of respondents supported the preferred route for the Stubbington Bypass.
