£1.8m road junction works about to begin

On Tuesday 4th January, Southampton City Council is to start work on a major £1.8m scheme to support plans for a new Park and Ride facility serving the city hospital.

Work will start at the Coxford Road/Lord’s Hill Way junction to make a number of improvements for people travelling by bus, bike, taxi and car.

The scheme will create a new rapid bus lane, allowing buses, taxis and cyclists turning left from Coxford Road towards Lordshill to completely bypass the signalised junction at Lord’s Hill Way. By taking left-turning buses, taxis and cyclists away from the traffic signals, this will also improve journey times for all vehicles using the junction.

As well as benefiting the standard bus services operated locally by City Red and Bluestar, the scheme will also support buses travelling from the NHS Trust’s new 1,000 space Park and Ride facility which is set to open at Adanac Park in mid-2022.

The works follow a consultation with the local community and will be delivered by the council’s Highways Partners, Balfour Beatty Living Places, over approximately 21 weeks.

The northbound lane on Coxford Road will be closed from the junction with Greywell Avenue to the junction with Lord’s Hill Way/Lordswood Road. This closure will be in place for the duration of the works, with a diversion route in place.
