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.

EMERGENCY services were called after it was reported children were inside a burning house.

The blaze began just after 8.30pm last night at a property in Turner Avenue, Gosport.

Firefighters from Fareham and Gosport attended and made a thorough search of the house –but the children were actually with neighbours.

A spokesman for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said the crews dealt with a small fire on the stairs.

They said no-one was injured in the incident.
