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 one works have been progressing well. The foundations were completed two weeks ago and the signals engineers have been feeding through and wiring up the traffic signals although these will not be switched on until after phase two. The half a metre of asphalt surfacing was applied over last weekend and the roundabout will be switched to phase two on Saturday 10 November overnight from 8pm.
If you are thinking of alternative travel options our MyJourney team have provided some advice.
