Update on the Ashfield bridge on the A27

Romsey Advertiser:

Bridge work will close off main route into town

- the councillor's comments are inappropriate, the planning stage was gone through earlier in the year, and was covered in the press at that time.
- "It is important that the food, clothing, electronics and other consumer goods which arrive in Southampton in containers can make their onward journeys by rail at all times to stock shops around the country,” 
- yes, but these goods are imported, and while a good idea for Freightliner and the Port of Southampton, not such a good one for the economy, although some outbound containers will contain exports.
- and no coverage of what is to happen for the ordinary commuter - extra coaches on  the Romsey - Southampton routes, free parking at Romsey station for the duration?
