Department for Transport

The borough of Havant will directly benefit from significant investment from the Department for Transport via the Transforming Cities Fund. The fund underpins the government’s modern Industrial Strategy in supporting cities to make it easier, safer and quicker for people to travel and get to work by funding-improved transport connections.

Announced in September 2018, significant funding is being provided to cover a proposed multi-million pound Bus Rapid Transit scheme. The scheme will develop new infrastructure and bespoke transport corridors connecting Waterlooville and Havant to the Portsmouth work area. It will help link new housing developments and cutting-edge business parks such as Dunsbury Park (in Havant) to Portsmouth and the wider south Hampshire area.

Partners in the work include Portsmouth City Council and Hampshire County Council.
