Rudmore Roundabout

Closing Date : 31/03/2023

Opening Date : 28/09/2020


Name: Project Management Office


Overview of the scheme

Transforming Cities Fund logo

Rudmore roundabout is a busy junction, used by local traffic, buses and a variety of vehicles accessing Portsmouth city centre, the Portsmouth International Port and cargo terminal, Portico, and the M275. The area is often congested at peak times, delaying local and Park & Ride bus services.

What is proposed and why

The current layout of Rudmore roundabout restricts the amount of traffic that can exit to the motorway. The proposals will allow bus priority and offers capacity improvements.

Our proposals will:

  • Widen the northbound access to the motorway increasing junction capacity
  • Extend the bus lane back to the roundabout exit onto M275
  • Change 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 the flow of traffic
  • Widen the road for vehicles exiting the roundabout southbound to make this a safer and easier route
  • Create a new cycle lane southbound to create a safer route

Have your say

All proposals are subject to consultation.  We asked for your views on what we’re proposing in a survey, but this closed on Sunday 5 September 2021. We’ll use feedback received to shape these plans to make them work for everyone.

You can now view the results of this consultation at our Your City, Your Say website.

We held some briefing sessions for these proposals in August 2021. Please contact us if you’d like to receive recordings of these briefing sessions for Rudmore Roundabout.

Next steps

The feedback we receive from our survey will help us to finalise designs, before undertaking a statutory 21-day consultation. We’ll update this page with further information and detailed designs as this scheme progresses to the next stage.

Although surveys are now closed on these schemes, we’d encourage you to sign up to our SEHRT community panel so that you can be informed about future developments for these sites, as well as future surveys about proposed developments in Portsmouth and across South East Hampshire.
