Progress report

Your responses and comments during this consultation period will be analysed and we will make any amendments to our proposals, if necessary.

The handling of information collected will comply with the Data Protection Act, Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations.

If you have any general questions about this work, please contact the Highways England Information Line/Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 (local call rate), or by email to info@highwaysengland.co.uk.

What next?

We will publish the details of the preferred scheme within 12 weeks of the end of the consultation period.

Spring 2017 Publish details of the preferred scheme
End of March 2020 Start construction

Why we need this scheme

Congestion is a real problem in this area. The M271 southbound to the A33 has average speeds of below 40 mph during peak hours. This also impacts road safety.

Aims

This scheme will:
  • reduce traffic delays on this important route into Southampton
  • create more reliable journey times for local, regional and port transport
