- Where: Millbrook Road West eastbound and Millbrook Road West service road
- When: October 2020 onwards
- What: Widen Millbrook Road West on the approach to Regents Park Road
- Why: To improve traffic flow and open the possibility for Southampton’s first Park & Ride site
The council are considering plans to widen Millbrook Road West on the approach to Regents Park Road junction, from three lanes to four. To do this would require narrowing the service road part way between King George’s Avenue and Regents Park Road. Parking in front of the shops would be maintained but a section of the service road at the eastern end would need to be reduced to one lane and this would mean making the whole service road one-way.
Included in the Transforming Cities Fund programme is a plan to establish a Park & Ride site that serve places of work and leisure or retail. This site would be on the edge of the city and part of Local Mobility Hubs closer in, where people can park before continuing their journey by bus, cycle, walking, e-bike or car-share. The additional lane would allow for the future possibility of a bus lane to support Southampton’s first park and ride scheme.
At this stage, we are engaging with local residents and businesses, gathering their feedback on the practicalities of this work.
