Make your views heard on Gosport Peninsula improvements

Tuesday, 20 August 2013

Hampshire County Council is encouraging people to comment on the proposals to improve Newgate Lane and the western access to Gosport including a Stubbington bypass.

The consultation runs until Monday 9 September and the questionnaire and information can be found online or at Stubbington Library and Lee on the Solent Library.

The results of the consultation will help to inform and guide work on detailed traffic, engineering, environmental and cost assessments for a Stubbington Bypass. They will also enable the County Council to finalise the detailed design of the Newgate Lane north improvements and provide a steer on which interim measures for the Peel Common Junction are supported.

Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said: "With the consultation running for a few more weeks we are urging local residents and those that drive around the Gosport Peninsula to make their views known and complete our questionnaire if they have not done so already.

We will be using the responses from the consultation to help shape proposals that will address existing traffic problems on the Gosport peninsula, to improve major east-west and north-south routes and to enhance access to the Solent Enterprise Zone. Therefore local knowledge is vital in helping us come up with the right solution to meet local people's requirements."

The County Council is:

  • Seeking early views from residents and businesses on possible routes for the Stubbington bypass and related improvements
  • Presenting detailed plans for the proposed improvements to the northern section of Newgate Lane between Palmerston Drive and Tanners Lane
  • Asking for a view on interim measures to improve the Peel Common junction
