Essential work to reconstruct the foundations and resurface Millbrook Roundabout is planned to start on 1 October 2018 and is expected to take 28 weeks to complete. Due to the scale and depth of the reconstruction work the roundabout will need to be partially closed in four phases each taking from six to eight weeks.
The impact of the closure of each section of the roundabout is likely to be significant and we anticipate there being congestion and delays, particularly at peak times. We are advising motorists to plan their journeys, allowing extra time and to follow the advised diversion routes. Information about the diversion routes can be found in the frequently asked questions.
Please also consider alternative travel arrangements. The Southampton My Journey team have provided some advice and money saving tips.

In that first morning we removed 12 lorry loads (over 200 tonnes) of asphalt surface and by the afternoon we were breaking through the concrete base.
Traffic has been busy, as expected, over the first few days. We have made some adjustments to the traffic management and we are monitoring the situation. We anticipate that peak congestion will reduce over this week as people plan their journeys to find the best options for them.
If you are thinking of alternative travel options our MyJourney team have provided some advice.
