FED UP Elsie Talbot is wondering why she ever moved back to Gosport because of the amount of traffic congestion

THERE is tons of room there that they could make that a dual carriageway in parts.

They could ask 1,000 people but they’ve made their minds up already.

There is too much traffic. They are building and building here and there is only one main road out of this town.

If you go through Newgate Lane, that’s just as blocked.

The other day, from Fareham, it took us an hour- and-a-half to get back to where we live in Alverstoke.

I was born in Gosport and then we moved away to Lovedean and lived there for 20 years and we came back.

I thought it would have improved but it hasn’t.

Why we ever moved back to Gosport I’ll never know.

Gosport is getting the blame but they should build a tunnel or bridge rather than a road.

If they don’t stop building everything else, especially at Daedalus, then they’re going to make it worse.

We get to the end of our road and decide whether to go on the A32 or Newgate Lane and whichever way you go, it’s just as bad. And every time they go to improve the A32, another set of traffic lights appear.

When we go to Waterlooville, we expect that to take us about an hour.

I think they’re better off by building roundabouts.

By the time they get round to doing it, then it won’t bother me because I’ll be dead.

My grandson emigrated to Canada and he came over 12 months ago and said he’d never come back because of the road.

When you think of the people that have to use the road, well, I’ve got two daughters, and one travels to Waterlooville and one goes to the QA in Cosham – they have to leave an hour before they start work because of traffic.
