Improving access to Fareham and Gosport, and potential Stubbington bypass

Updated 5 August 2014

Public consultation 9 June to 4 August 2014

The public consultation is now closed.

All comments received will be given full consideration. Feedback from the consultation will be reported to the Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment during autumn 2014, when a decision will be made on whether or not the improvement schemes should be progressed, subject to funding.

Planning applications for Stubbington Bypass and the southern section of Newgate Lane are currently expected to be submitted in spring 2015, with other schemes in the package being progressed subject to appropriate funding and business case approval.

The consultation set out proposals for:

  1. Stubbington Bypass: preferred route linking Titchfield gyratory and Titchfield Road to Gosport Road and Peel Common roundabout
  2. Peel Common roundabout: interim (phase 1) improvements
  3. Newgate Lane southern section: ‘eastern alignment’ improvement linking to Peel Common roundabout
  4. A27 Corridor Improvements: phases 1 and 2 junction capacity
  5. improvements and upgrading to dual carriageway A27 Corridor phase 3 junction improvements only (no dualling)

About the 2013 public consultation

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:

  • invited early views from residents and businesses on possible routes for the Stubbington bypass and related improvements
  • presented detailed plans for the proposed improvements to the northern section of Newgate Lane between Palmerston Drive and Tanners Lane
  • asked for views on interim measures to improve the Peel Common roundabout

Background summary

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.

  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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
