Redbridge Viaduct

Transforming Cities Fund

Last update: June 2024

Scheme overview

The aim of this scheme is to increase the existing parapet height on A35 Redbridge Causeway in order to offer increased protection for those cycling and walking and to encourage more 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.

These works have been completed and was delivered as part of the wider A35 Road and Bridge essential works, more information can be found here.
