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

MORE than 550 miles of roadworks will be lifted over Easter to help bank holiday journeys go smoothly.

In the south east alone around 180 miles of roadworks will either be lifted over, or completed by Easter

The Highways Agency aims to complete or lift 209 sets of roadworks by April.

Simon Sheldon-Wilson, from the Highways Agency, said: ‘This Easter, we’re helping drivers with their journeys by clearing roadworks across the majority of motorways and major A-roads in England.

‘By suspending or completing roadworks, more lanes will be open. We’ve worked closely with other transport providers to help Easter road trips go smoothly.’

Roadworks on the A27 near Chichester have been completed, although carriageway widening works on the M27 near Southampton will remain.
