Hamble Lane Improvements Consultation
Hampshire County Council is currently developing proposals to improve people’s journeys in and out of Hamble.
At his Decision Day on 14 November 2017 the County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Rob Humby, gave approval to undertake a public consultation in Autumn 2017 on improvements to the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane, in order to seek views on the extent and nature of potential improvements, the potential for behaviour change when it comes to travel choices, wider travel-planning initiatives, and the preferred way forward.
The County Council wants to improve the A3025 / B3397 Hamble Lane focusing on the northern section between Windhover Roundabout and the Pound Road junction. The County Council is also seeking opportunities to improve the southern section of the route by looking at ways to improve people’s travel choices. At peak times sections of Hamble Lane are at maximum capacity, which can cause severe journey time delays for residents and commuters.
The area covered by the scheme is shown on this plan.
In line with the above decision a public consultation exercise is taking place from Monday 27 November 2017, until Sunday 7 January 2018. Once the consultation is live (from 27 November) the consultation material and response form can be viewed here.
There will also
be three drop-in events for people to attend on:
Monday 27 November, from 1pm-7pm at Pilands Wood Centre, Chamberlayne Road, Bursledon, SO31 8DT;
Thursday 7 December, from 1pm-7pm at Roy Underdown Pavilion, Spitfire Way, Hamble-le-Rice, SO31 4RY; and
Wednesday 13 December, from 1pm-7pm at Abbey Hall, Victoria Road, Netley SO31 5FA
The closing date for responses is 7 January 2018.
