Lake Road widening complete ready for new bus lane

Portsmouth City Council has reached a major milestone, with the completion of the Lake Road carriageway widening, bringing the project towards completion in summer 2024.

The existing road was widened to create space for the new bus lane and walking and cycling facilities. This space is currently being used as a temporary traffic lane, allowing two-way traffic to continue to flow, while the contractor progresses with works along the southern kerbline.

In addition to the travel improvements, the new drainage infrastructure will help to reduce the pressure of rainwater overwhelming the sewers. This will aid the prevention of wastewater being released into the sea.  

Landscaping contractors will complete the works in this area during the next planting season.
