Use M3 Junction 9, Winchester?
Have your say to help shape Highways England’s multi million pound proposals for improvements, including a newly designed road layout, to reduce congestion, make journey times more reliable, improve road safety and reduce air pollution.
We’ve given evidence to the National Infrastructure Commission on the importance of improving this key route in Hampshire as part of the Government’s Road Investment Strategy, and it’s good to see the wider community now being asked their views on the plans.
Cllr Rob Humby, HCC Executive Member for Environment and Transport, said: “We’re really pleased that our work as the local Highways Authority with Highways England is progressing, and the improvements we’ve been pressing for at Junction 9 of the M3 at Winchester are now moving forward.
It will provide much needed relief for local residents, and commuters from traffic and environmental issues at this notorious bottleneck, as well as support the local economy by providing a better link for businesses, not only in the immediate area, but also for those who use it as a through route from the ports of Southampton and Portsmouth to the Midlands. I look forward to seeing how these proposals develop and it’s good to see the wider community and local stakeholders now being asked their views. I would encourage people who use this route to provide Highways England with local knowledge to help shape their plans ”
