PLANS for a £5.9m scheme to ease a congestion hotspot are to go on show.

The proposals for the Asda roundabout at Bedhampton will be on display at the Dickinson Centre, at Park Community School, in Leigh Park, from 4pm to 8pm today.

People will also have the opportunity to view the plans when they go on display in the Havant Plaza from tomorrow until June 24.

The scheme will increase the size of the junction and introduce traffic signal controls on two approach roads to the roundabout.

The project would also upgrade the Purbrook Way approach from the A3(M) to two lanes in each direction and put in improvements to make it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to cross.

The project is being led by Hampshire County, Portsmouth City and Havant Borough councils.

Councillor Seán Woodward, who is in charge of transport in Hampshire, said: ‘The Asda roundabout is currently heavily congested at peak times and the proposed scheme is designed to help alleviate this as well as provide additional capacity for planned developments, including the proposed Dunsbury Hill farm employment development.’
