Overview of the scheme
Rudmore Roundabout is a busy junction, used by local traffic, buses and a variety of vehicles accessing both the Portsmouth International Port and cargo terminal. Rudmore Roundabout is congested at peak times, delaying local bus services and the Portsmouth Park and Ride.
Once this phase of the South East Rapid Transit scheme is complete, passengers from Havant will save up to 5 and a half minutes on their journey, and passengers from Waterlooville will save just over 5 minutes. There will also be journey-time savings for local passengers on the 8 and 20 from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, Hilsea and Stamshaw and from Hilsea and North End on the 700.
What is proposed and why
The current layout of Rudmore Roundabout restricts traffic flow for all road users. The proposals allow bus priority and offers capacity improvements
Our proposal includes:
- Removal of the guarded left-turn at Wharf Road to allow two-lane exit from the roundabout, improving traffic flow.
- Changing the layout of the roundabout to allow for two lanes from the A3 at Stamshaw Road and Kingston Crescent to travel to M275 northbound, improving capacity.
All proposals are subject to consultation.
Schemes are in the final stages of preliminary design. Once complete proposals will be presented to stakeholders for consultation, details of which will be provided here.
