|Gyratory with signals|
The Titchfield Gyratory is a junction on the A27. It was previously little more than two one-way roads crossing a dual carriageway, but it has become a more formal affair now, particularly now one corner of the junction has traffic lights making it very nearly a signalised roundabout.
The junction is located towards the bottom of a steep hill, with westbound (downhill) traffic having to negotiate a series of bends shortly afterwards.
The reason for the junction is that this is the start of the Titchfield Bypass, with the westbound carriageway partly using the alignment of the old road. The section between Titchfield Hill and Southampton Road was the last section of the gyratory to be built, built at the same time as the B3334 was taken out of Titchfield.
