27 January 2016

Scheme update

Work on this scheme is progressing to improve the ASDA roundabout.  The contractors are now working on north and south arms of Hulbert Road will need to be closed to northbound traffic.  One closure is already in place and the other will be in affect from Wednesday 27 January till February 2016.  One lane on the south side of the roundabout and access to Asda will be open at all times.  A diversion route is in place for northbound traffic, via Purbrook Way and the A3 with advance warning signs in place.

Works is being undertaken at two locations on Hulbert Road north of the roundabout by two different contractors.  The construction of the new roundabout to the Dunsbury Hill Farm development and the ASDA Roundabout works are both being progressed in tandem under the same road closure.

Traffic management

Hampshire County Council and its contractor Osborne Ltd have planned all works to minimise disruption.

Osborne Ltd holds weekly surgeries to keep residents and businesses up to date. The surgeries take place every Wednesday from 11am in the site office in the field between Hulbert Road and Purbrook Way east.

Overview

The improvements will provide:

  • an increase in the size of the roundabout to increase its capacity and reduce delays
  • new traffic lights on both Purbrook Way approach roads to the roundabout to reduce delays
  • widening of the Purbrook Way (west) approach road to increase its capacity
  • new pedestrian and cycle paths and signal controlled crossings to make it easier for people to cross the junction
  • safety improvements at the Park House Farm Way junction

Construction dates

The main works started in October 2014 and are planned for completion Spring 2016. The roundabout will stay open during the works.

Funding arrangements
