In 2013 Hampshire County Council ran a public consultation on proposals to improve Newgate Lane and the western access to Gosport including a Stubbington bypass. The consultation ended on 9 September 2013. The full report on the consultation results is available below.
The proposals aim to help address existing traffic problems on the Gosport peninsula to improve strategic east west and north south routes and to enhance access to the Solent Enterprise Zone.
In the consultation the County Council:
Detailed proposals have been developed for a major improvement scheme for the B3385 Newgate Lane between and including the junctions with Palmerston Drive at the northern end and Peel Common roundabout to the south.
Interim improvements to Peel Common junction include the provision of traffic light controls on the roundabout and revised pedestrian, cycle and bus stop facilities. Public views will help inform the technical work on further development of these plans which will be subject to further consultation within the local area.
This includes improvements to the A27 between Titchfield and Segensworth and a bypass for the village of Stubbington. Initial work has identified three principal route corridors for a Stubbington bypass.
improving the B3334 Gosport Road from Peel Common roundabout, then providing a new junction with a bypass route to the east of Stubbington, and linking via a new road junction into the B3334 Titchfield Road to the north of Stubbington
providing a new bypass route from the B3385 Newgate Lane at a point to the north of the Peel Common waste water treatment plant, to the south-western corner of the HMS Collingwood site, following its western boundary, and then turning west towards a new road junction at the B3334 Titchfield Road north of Stubbington
improving the existing Longfield Avenue from its junction with Newgate Lane westwards to a point near the north-western corner of the HMS Collingwood site, where the route leaves Longfield Avenue and heads west towards a new junction with the B3334 Titchfield Road north of Stubbington
