M271 and A35 Redbridge roundabout upgrade

An upgrade to the Redbridge roundabout. This will include a dedicated left-turn lane for traffic leaving the M271 to access Southampton docks and city centre.

Region:  South East
Start date:  May 2019
Cost:  £8.5 million to £15.5 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  Spring 2020
Programme:  

Progress report

In November and December 2016, we held a public consultation to gather feedback on proposed plans to improve the M271 A35 Redbridge roundabout.

All comments from the public consultation were analysed and we'd like to thank everyone who provided their feedback and attended the exhibition.

You can read our executive summary which provides information on the preferred route, including a map to show what the scheme will look like. If you'd like to find out further information on the feedback we received, you can read the public consultation report:

Since then we've been working on our design and ensuring that we're ready to start construction in May 2019. This work includes assessing the environmental impacts, refining the benefits that we'll be delivering with the scheme and how we can minimise disruption during construction. We've also been designing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross the roundabout both during and after construction.

What's next?

There will be an opportunity to find out more about the scheme and how it will impact on you in spring 2019, when we'll hold public information events.

Why we need this scheme

Congestion is a real problem in this area. The M271 southbound to the A33 has average speeds of below 40 mph during peak hours which also impacts road safety.

Aims

This scheme will:

  • reduce traffic delays on this important route into Southampton
  • create more reliable journey times for local, regional and port transport

The scheme in detail

This scheme will create a segregated left lane to ease congestion for vehicles travelling from the motorway to the City and Port of Southampton. Widening will also be done to introduce another lane on the roundabout for traffic going in the opposite direction. Improvements will be made to the subway by Gover Road while the subway at the southern edge of the roundabout will be decommissioned.

A toucan crossing will be introduced, with the crossings on Redbridge Road being upgraded and moved for safety reasons. The footbridge will be replaced to make it possible for both pedestrians and cyclists to cross and a shared use path will be built on the southern side of the roundabout which will link up with Southampton City Council’s network.

Please see the M271 Redbridge Preferred Route Map for details.
