Portsmouth Transport Hub Leads The Way With Ambitious Plans
The gateway into Portsmouth is set to be transformed with the creation of a new transport hub.
Portsmouth City Council's planning committee has approved the outline plans for developing detailed designs for a new transport hub on the site of the Park & Ride, just off the M275. They believe this will support economic growth, contribute to a reduction in air pollution and make Portsmouth a more pleasant place for people to work, live, study and visit.
The hub will support the plans for regeneration of the Portsmouth city centre by offering a direct, affordable and sustainable park and ride service for more people. Other potential future developments in the Tipner area would also benefit from the connectivity provided by the hub that plans to link with walking, e-scooter rental and cycling networks. Making travel connections to various locations more easily accessible.
The outline plan has established the principals that will be developed into more detailed designs. The principals set out include the maximum size of the building, the areas that will be landscaped, especially those adjacent to housing to the East and by the M275 to the west and an indication of the access points for both vehicles and people walking/cycling.
There are two potential options for layouts, however, the exact details are all to be developed by engaging with residents, business owners and key stakeholders. If approved by the planning committee, later this year, work should start in 2023.
