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
The planning application for the Stubbington Bypass was submitted to the County Council in July 2015 and planning permission was granted (subject to conditions) in October 2015.
The County Council are actively seeking funding for the scheme through various channels, most notably from Local Growth Funding via the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). The Council have been invited by the Solent LEP to submit an Outline Business Case for the scheme, which is currently under consideration. Based on the known information and timescales, the earliest that construction of the scheme could commence would be during 2018/19, subject to securing funding.

Background: 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
