with Highways England is progressing, and the improvements we’ve been pressing
for at Junction 9 of the M3 at Winchester are now moving forward.
It will provide much needed relief for local residents, and commuters from
traffic and environmental issues at this notorious bottleneck, as well as
support the local economy by providing a better link for businesses, not only
in the immediate area, but also for those who use it as a through route from
the ports of Southampton and Portsmouth to the Midlands. I look forward to
seeing how these proposals develop and it’s good to see the wider community and
local stakeholders now being asked their views. I would encourage people who
use this route to provide Highways England with local knowledge to help shape
their plans "
