Thank you to everyone who has completed the consultation questionnaire. It is now closed to new submissions so we can review and analyse the results, before sharing them on the Connecting Southampton website.

We want to make Portswood District Centre a more attractive place and reduce the detrimental impact on residents and visitors of too much through traffic. We are therefore proposing restrictions to through traffic with only buses being able to drive through the entirety of the District Centre.

This will allow us to make the area more pedestrian friendly with widened footways and better crossing facilities. It will also benefit bus journey times and provide space for better bus stop infrastructure including ‘super stops’ with large shelters and real time information, making bus travel more attractive.

The parallel corridor of Thomas Lewis Way and the improvements to its junction currently underway provide the unique opportunity to shift traffic away from Portswood Road, thereby enabling the creation of a vibrant District Centre that invites people to enjoy and spend time here.



There is further information on the scheme in the downloadable documents section on this page.
