Transport Improvements to the Outdoor Sports Centre


Where: Roads and area surrounding the Outdoor Sports Centre 

When: February 2024 onwards 

What: Transport and highways projects to improve access to the Outdoor Sports Centre. 

Why: To improve access to the Outdoor Sports Centre as it is redeveloped into an important Sports facility for Southampton, mitigating any changes in traffic and  enabling people to utilise active and sustainable travel. 


The Outdoor Sports Centre is a unique facility in the city, providing a diverse range of sports and activities for people to enjoy.  In 2023 the council received £20M of Levelling Up Funding to regenerate the whole site as a modern multi-sports venue for Southampton and the region.  

£1.3M of this funding has been allocated for projects to improve access to the Outdoor Sports Centre.  These are necessary to support the redevelopment  by managing the changes in traffic and will allow people to access the site by active and sustainable transport.  

The goal of this project is to improve sustainable travel journeys to the Outdoor Sports Centre and reduce the impact of the forecast increase in additional traffic.
