Over 350 people have backed Jackie's campaign to reduce the noise.
Jackie commented: "I have been campaigning to address this blight on local people since before the last general election.
"Working with Lib Dem Eastleigh MP Mike Thornton, I have been able get the Treasury to pay special attention to our badly affected local area.
"There is still work to do, quieter surfaces will not address the problem completely. I will continue campaigning to combat the issue of road noise.
