Portsmouth City Council has run two events to showcase plans for a £500,000 Eastern Corridor project.The project aims to improve a main route from Drayton that leads down to the seafront.

The sessions, held in Anchorage Park and Milton, were attended by nearly 100 people. The outcome of the project is to improve the journey for all users of the route.

Attendees were told about the plans to review existing cycling routes, road markings and facilities for public transport users, with work expected to be completed by April 2018.
