In what the council has called a ‘short diversion’, motorists travelling to and from Hayling Island will have to go a mile-and-a-half out of their way while Langstone Road is closed. 

This seven-minute journey, pictured, will take them past Langstone Technology Park, Brookside Road, Brockhampton Road and Langstone Gate to get to Park Road North.
