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
