Flooding shuts A36 near Romsey

Daily Echo: Eight miles of main road shut due to flooding Eight miles of main road shut due to flooding

A NUMBER of Hampshire roads have been closed this evening due to flooding.

And the Environment Agency (EA) has warned that there could be fresh flooding over the weekend.

Eight miles of the A36 between Totton and Salisbury have been closed off as torrential rain falls this evening.

The closure affects the stretch of the road between the A27 Brickworth Road, and the A3090 roundabout near West Wellow.

A section of Romsey Road at its junction with Botley Road is also closed.

Now the EA has warned that there could be tidal flooding across the south coast between Friday and Sunday.

The agency's head of flood incident management, Craig Woolhouse, said: “Strong winds and large waves along the west and south coasts of England are forecast between Friday and Sunday, coinciding with high tides.

“Impacts could include flooding affecting some coastal properties and communities.

"Coastal paths and promenades could be highly dangerous as there is an increased risk of being swept out to sea.

"People are warned to stay away from the shoreline."

Like the article says, between the A27 junction and the roundabout at the A3090 or from Brickworth corner to the Ower roundabout, Probably a bit more than 8 miles and doubtful if the entire length is closed but thats all the info given above.

Please could we re-instate the role of the manual (with a shovel) digger of ditches, thus allowing water to flow away off the roads ... ahh, physical effort required, probably not allowed these days!!!
