The Able Connections proposal is to create a new North-South axis through the centre of the Solent region by constructing a tunnel from the M27 east of junction 9 to the Whippingham roundabout on the Isle of Wight, with an additional access intersection 'cut and cover' portal near the mainland coast between Browndown and Meon.  (options being discussed). The scheme brings a range of benefits to the region, including a step change in the connectivity of the Solents emerging mass transit public transport network, reduced highway congestion, reduced HGVs in city centres, new habitat for wildlife and public amenity, agglomeration benefits for industries in the Aerospace, Marine Defence and Composites sectors and other major employers in south Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, as well as improved accessibility for tourists to the island.

A FUNDRAISER is looking for businesses to support a masquerade ball.

The Crimson Masquerade Ball will be taking place on October 7 at The Langstone Hotel, Hayling Island, to raise money for Bloodwise.

Bloodwise is a charity that funds research into cures for lymphoma and leukaemia.

The event will feature a three-course meal.

Organiser Katie Jackson said: ‘In 2007 I lost my grandfather to blood cancer. It’s only once you are affected that you realise how many people are also affected by it.

‘More recently a friend of mine was diagnosed with blood cancer and is now in remission. The research Bloodwise has done has saved his life. We are looking for sponsors. If you would be willing to sponsor us £250, we will offer you two tickets to the event itself.’
