Delays expected due to lane closure in the city

March 1962 and a naval rating signals Halt to more conventional traffic as the Saunders-Roe SRN1 crosses the seafront at Lee-on-the-Solent and returns to HMS Ariel, now the site of the Hovercraft Museum. Roles such as anti-submarine warfare, air-sea rescue and mine countermeasures were foreseen.						                                Pictures courtesy Amberley Publishing

DRIVERS are being warned to expect delays heading north from the Rudmore roundabout in Portsmouth.

For the next four weeks, work is being done to install environmental barrier fencing alongside the northbound slip-road to reduce noise for residents of Whale Island. A lane will be closed to keep workers and drivers safe.

The lane closure will take place between 7.30am and 4pm.

Simon Brownlie, Portsmouth City Council’s traffic and network manager, said: ‘It’s great that we’re able to do this work for residents but unfortunately it will mean some disruption heading north from Rudmore roundabout.

‘Drivers should expect delays and where possible use alternate routes. We’re doing everything we can to minimise disruption to traffic and are very grateful for everyone’s patience.’
