Hampshire County Council appointed contractor Knights Brown Limited who carried out the improvement works to the existing shared use cycle route on the southern side of Bursledon Road between Windhover Roundabout and Botley Road.  The works started on 21 November 2022 and the main works completed in March 2023. 

Scheme overview

The aim of this scheme is to improve the existing shared use cycle route on the southern side of Bursledon Road between Windhover roundabout and Botley Road on the A3024, improving cycle connectivity in the area.

This scheme will enhance the cycling link along the A3024 together with cycle improvements in the locality including crossing improvements and repositioned lighting columns and improved signage for the route.

This scheme connects Bursledon Road to existing cycle and pedestrian infrastructure (including Southampton City Council’s Cycle Network “SCN” route 3). A key aim of this scheme is to encourage people to either or walk or cycle as their first choice of local travel.

In March 2020, Hampshire County Council welcomed news of the successful outcome of a funding bids to the Department for Transport (DfT). Made jointly with Southampton City Council, Hampshire County Council made a bid for investment designed to improve walking, cycling and public transport within the Southampton City Region. The Department for Transport awarded £57 million to the Southampton City Region from the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF). This funding is for capital investment in infrastructure to support and encourage active and sustainable travel from the outlying residential areas to key economic areas nearer the City Centre. The majority of the investment is on corridors from Eastleigh, Bursledon and The Waterside/Totton in addition to transport and mobility hubs in Eastleigh and at Southampton Parkway.

Approval to progress with implementation of the scheme was given at the Executive Member for Environment and Transport Decision Day 27 January 2022.
