Improvements to Peel Common Roundabout
Hampshire County Council carried out work to improve congestion at Peel Common Roundabout, through the provision of traffic lights and extra traffic lanes, as well as improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
What changes took place?
- Installation of traffic lights on the Rowner Road, Broom Way and Newgate Lane entry roads of the roundabout
- Extra space from Newgate Lane towards Rowner Road, and on the Rowner Road approach to the roundabout, to increase capacity for peak hour traffic
- A new footpath/cycleway on the south side of Rowner Road and the south-west side of the roundabout
- Revised toucan (pedestrian and cycle) crossing facilities across Newgate Lane near the junction and new toucan crossings on the Broom Way and Rowner Road exit arms of the roundabout. The existing crossing on Gosport Road will be retained.
