    Millbrook Roundabout Reconstruction

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. Travel advice can be found on the Southampton City Council website.
If residents or commuters are considering alternative travel arrangements, the Southampton My Journey team have provided some advice
 
Phasing of work
Phase 1: is planned to start 1 October 2018 and will require the closure of the north west section of the roundabout and is expected to take 6 weeks to complete. These works will require the closure of the inbound off-slip from Redbridge Road onto the roundabout as well as the junction with Wimpson Lane and the exit from the roundabout onto Tebourba Way (north bound). 
Phase 2: is planned to start mid November 2018 and will require the closure of the north east section of the roundabout and is expected to take 5 weeks to complete. This will require the closure of the roundabout junction with Tebourba Way (southbound) and the off-slip from the roundabout onto Millbrook Road West. 
Phase 3: is planned to start from the beginning of January 2019 and will require the closure of the south east section of the roundabout and the southbound section of First Avenue up to the entrance to City Depot and the Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC). This phase is expected to take 7 weeks to complete. This will require the closure of the outbound off-slip from Millbrook Road West onto the roundabout as well as the exit from the roundabout and First Avenue southbound. 
Phase 4: is planned to start from the beginning of March 2019 and will require the closure of the southwest section of the roundabout and the northbound section of First Avenue up to the entrance to the HWRC. This phase is expected to take 7 weeks to complete. This will require the closure of First Avenue northbound up to the roundabout and part of the off-slip onto Redbridge Road up to the junction with Second Avenue.
