The Eastleigh to Southampton Corridor will connect Fair Oak and Bishopstoke to Eastleigh by bus and bike, and onwards from Eastleigh to Southampton Airport and Southampton City Centre by bus and bike with improved connections to the University of Southampton.
The corridor carries approximately 6000 northbound and 6000 southbound vehicle trips per day via Portswood Broadway and 20,000 on Thomas Lewis Way with 26 two-way buses an hour, and connections with the rail network at Eastleigh, Southampton Airport, Swaythling and St Denys stations.
The corridor serves Portswood District Centre and employment areas in the City Centre around Solent University, Royal South Hants Hospital, Mountpark Southampton, Southampton Airport, Eastleigh Town Centre, and Barton Park Industrial Estate in Eastleigh.
There are a number of consultations and policy documents that have already fed in to the Portswood and Swaythling corridor proposals. These including the Cycling Strategy 2017-2027, the Local Transport Plan (Connected Southampton), our Transforming Cities Fund bid and the results from our early engagement with the Portswood and Swaythling communities conducted in October to December 2020.
