Stubbington bypass: improving access to Fareham and Gosport
Updated 3 August 2015
Planning permission application submitted
The planning application for the Stubbington by-pass has been submitted to the County Council.
As part of the formal planning process the application is open for comments until Friday 11 September.
The application can be viewed online, and at Fareham Borough Council, and the County Council's head offices in Winchester.
The £30 million bypass will:
- divert traffic around the outskirts of Stubbington and reduce journey time and peak hour congestion onto and off the Gosport peninsula
- remove transport barriers to growth and encourage investment and regeneration
- improve connectivity and provide additional road network resilience.

Newgate Lane northern section improvements
For the Newgate Lane northern section improvements please see the separate Newgate Lane page.
Newgate Lane (northern section)
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.
Peel Common Junction
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.
Western Access to Gosport including a Stubbington Bypass
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
