Have your say

WORK will soon begin at Tipner Bridge to transform the entrance into Portsmouth.

New coloured lights will be put in along the bridge to replace the now-defunct white lights that currently stand there.

It is hoped this will create an impressive entrance for visitors and residents.

The city’s cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport, Councillor Lee Hunt, said: ‘This will ensure the entrance to the city is smart and the best it can be, which is so important with more and more people coming to see us.’

While the works take place, there will be lane closures on the M275.

On Monday and Tuesday the inside lane northbound will be closed from 9.30am to 3.30pm while some of the work is carried out.

On Wednesday and Thursday the inside lane southbound will be closed overnight from 9pm to 5.30am.
