MOTORISTS are warned to expect delays on a major Hampshire road over the next 24 hours.

Traffic congestion is set to hit the main road southwards out of Winchester this evening and Tuesday morning.

Southern Water advises that the work to connect a new water pipe in St Cross Road will result in single file traffic controlled by temporary lights at Five Bridges Road until midday.

Colin Cook, who took the photo, said: “Commuters can look forward to a slow journey out of town tonight.”
