Hampshire County Council have confirmed that work is expected to start in November this year on the Stubbington bypass.
The long awaited road will enable drivers to bypass Subbington centre, hopefully reducing travel time and congestion in the village.
The scheme, which is expected to cost £34m, will involve building a single carriageway from the Gosport Road, near to Crofton Secondary School to Titchfield Road, (B3334) near Hollam.”
Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “We made a commitment to the people of Gosport and Stubbington to improve traffic and travel in South Hampshire.”
However, Titchfield residents have voiced concerns that the new road will result in more traffic using the village as a short cut.
The plans include changes to Titchfield Gyratory, but fears have been expressed that any queues backing up along the Titchfield Bypass will result in motorists using Bridge Street, Coach Hill and St Margaret’s Lane to rejoin the A27 to the west of the village.
