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.

TWO major routes in the Portsmouth area have been named in the top 10 for most dangerous roads for motorcyclists.

The A27 in Fareham and the A3 in Portsmouth have been named two of the south east’s most dangerous routes.

Those aged 25 were most likely to be involved in a motorcycle accident in the area while those aged over 65 were the least likely.

The figures compiled by Swinton Insurance also revealed that male motorcyclists were 91 per cent most likely to be involved in an accident than a female motorcyclist.
