Motorists in Havant reporting two hour delays as Asda car park is gridlocked
SHOPPERS are having a torrid time this afternoon as a supermarket car park has become gridlocked.
Motorists have taken to social media claiming they have been stuck in the Asda car park in Havant for more than two hours.
Police have been spotted on the scene, with Google Maps’ traffic service highlighting that the nearby roundabout is also moving slowly.
Drivers are advised to avoid the Purbrook Way if at all possible, instead using Barncroft way to head towards Havant or Bedhampton, or Park Lane via the A3(M) to get into Leigh Park.
A spokesman for ASDA informed The News that the store was aware of traffic at the roundabout, and that this issue crops up when the nearby McDonalds and KFC also get busy around lunch time.
They added that the supermarket itself has not been any busier than usual.
Hampshire Constabulary has been contacted for further information.
