7:41am Friday 7th February 2014 in News
COMMUTER chaos has hit Hampshire this morning due to widespread flooding.
Stoneham Lane in Eastleigh is currently closed in both directions between junction five of the M27 and Chestnut Avenue.
And a driver has been trapped in flood water .
The vehicle became stranded in flood water under a railway bridge in Highbridge Road, Allbrook, near Eastleigh, at around 8am.
It has blocked the road and motorists are warned to expect long delays.
There are also long delays on the M27 westbound between junctions three and seven.
Meanwhile the River Itchen has also burst its banks near the White Swan pub in Mansbridge.
The road is passable but motorists are urged to take care and avoid if possible.
Burley Road is also closed due to flooding at Bransgore in the New Forest.
Commuters getting up for trains will find services affected, including trains running at a reduced speed between Winchester and Micheldever stations on the line to London Waterloo, delaying services by around 15 minutes.
Trains continue to be diverted between Eastleigh and Fareham due to flooding on the line at Botley, causing numerous landslips including the collapse of an 80-metre section of embankment.
It is not expected to be fixed until the end of February.
