Brighton Hill Roundabout Feedback
Hampshire Highways are proposing to spend £18.6m on the A30 southwest corridor, with most this being set aside to upgrade Brighton Hill Roundabout.
The public consultation took place during September and closed on October 1st, with hundreds of people attending drop-in sessions at The Camrose Club, Christ The King Church, and Hatch Warren Community Centre.
The proposals are for traffic lights and crossings to be introduced on the roundabout, with widening to 4 lanes.
Following representations from your local Brighton Hill Labour Councillors at meetings with Hampshire County Council officers, the underpasses are to be retained. You told us how important that was during the last roundabout consultation. New pedestrian and cycle crossings are also planned.
The most controversial aspect is the re-routing of traffic joining the roundabout from Western Way via the Camrose site. We know a lot of people travel between Brighton Hill and South Ham.
Labour Councillors will continue to discuss access to Western Way with the Hampshire team to make sure we have an acceptable solution.
Work is due to start at the beginning of 2020.
