Windhover Roundabout is a busy roundabout junction where several routes in to Southampton meet.

It originally consisted of three roads forming a triangle shape, all running two-way. A farm was built in the middle in the 1890s.

In 1969, the 'triangle' had its corners rounded, turning it into a formal roundabout. The north-east side of the roundabout was then enlarged to make space for the link to the M27. This required a number of buildings on West End Road to be demolished. The old alignment can still be seen as a gap in the trees.

A retail development in the corner of the junction at Bursledon Towers saw Hamble Lane upgraded to dual carriageway. Around the same time, the road was renumbered as part of the A3025 to keep traffic out of Lowford.

Two arms of the roundabout were later signalised. Highways England is proposing to signalise the rest.
