Rather predictably, the new BRT bus highway has made no difference to my daily commute at all.
The traffic on the A32 is as chocker as usual. There’s just a lack of buses on the major pinch point – because they now run parallel on the near-empty highway next door.
But for people in Gosport, the BRT has reignited the debate on whether the answer to all our prayers would be a tunnel underneath the harbour.
Aside from the fact that the Royal Navy’s new carriers have put the final nail in the lid of that particular coffin, I always thought it sounded like a massive white elephant.
Portsmouth’s roads are almost as congested as Gosport’s. Wouldn’t connecting the two via an underwater rat-run just see us scuttling from one jam to another?
