With Redirect, the remainder of the old path is automatically re-appended.
Use RewriteRule code instead. It gives you more control. Use the [R=301,L] flags.
Be aware that for any requested URL you do NOT want a multiple step redirection chain. Make sure (using the "Live HTTP Headers" extension for Firefox), that the redirect happens in a single step.
