Essential work to reconstruct the foundations and resurface Millbrook Roundabout started 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.

Millbrook Roundabout - Phase three begins Monday 7 January 2019
Phase 3 work on the South East section of Millbrook Roundabout starts Monday 7 January 2019. This could be the most challenging phase of work with Dock Gate 20 closed inbound. This means that all port bound traffic will need to divert to West Quay Road and Dock Gate 10. Traffic signals, temporary signs and junction changes are all being put in place to help drivers get to their destinations. However we are asking everyone to plan their journeys and to allow additional travel time. For those travelling to the city centre we recommend considering alternative routes to West Quay Road, using the northern or eastern approaches.
The council’s household waste and recycling centre in Millbrook will remain open throughout and can be reached via Allington Road and Second Avenue. Major satnav providers will be aware of the closure so providing your satnav app has live traffic updates this will be the best way to plan any journey to and from the Millbrook area. Please take a look at our advised diversion routes to plan your journey.
