Interserve wins Highways England contract on Southampton’s M271 Redbridge Roundabout

M271 Redbridge Roundabout - Interserve

Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has secured a £4million Highways England contract to upgrade the M271 Redbridge roundabout near Southampton Docks.

The scheme will see Interserve create a new free-flow, left-turn lane from the M271 to the Port of Southampton. The infrastructure division will also complete road-widening works to create four lanes on the roundabout to increase its overall capacity.

Other associated works will include an additional toucan crossing which enables pedestrians and cyclists to cross together, replacing a footbridge and refurbishing an existing subway to the north of the junction.

Congestion is a problem in this area of Southampton with the M271 southbound to the A33 exhibiting average speeds of below 40 mph during peak hours which also impacts road safety.

This scheme will reduce traffic delays on this important route into Southampton and create more reliable journey times for local, regional and port transport.

Wayne Howell, Sector Director for Highways said: “We are delighted to have secured another Highways England contract after our recent success on the A63 Princes Quay in Hull. Our works on the Redbridge roundabout will benefit residents, businesses and ease congestion around Southampton docks.”
