Purbrook Way and B2150 Hulbert Road (Asda) roundabout in Havant: transport improvements

July 2016

Scheme update

Work on this scheme is progressing to improve the ASDA roundabout.  From Monday 4 July work will start to remove and reinstate the site compound including removal of cabins and access road, landscaping, fencing and seeding.  The current restrictions on the roundabout and approach roads remain in place to ensure the safety for the public and the contractor whilst works take place.  As areas are completed we will continue to remove the traffic management when it is safe to do so. In the coming weeks we will complete the linemarking, footway surfacing, traffic signals, signage, pedestrian railings and these require lane closures to remain in place. Until the traffic signals are switched on, the roundabout will continue to operate with give way signs on all approaches and some lanes closures.  Week commencing 18 July the roundabout will be fully operational.

For further information, please visit the contractor's website.

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 July 2016. The roundabout will stay open during the works.

Funding arrangements

Following a successful bid to the Government, the Department for Transport awarded £3.7 million to assist in paying for the scheme. The total cost is about £5.9 million.
