It must be obvious to all, except those in command of all things traffic, that the roadworks surrounding Dock Gate 4 is the main contributor to congestion, yet whilst passing Dock Gate 4 on Thursday, January 16 at about 10.30 am, there was not a soul to be seen working anywhere on the project.
As the cruise business is a lifeline to many people and commercial enterprises in the city, I would have thought that a 24-hour effort at the least on one of the roadworks would help bring this major hindrance to a swifter conclusion.
It is vital that we make continued investment in all things required to maintain Southampton as a major international port. It would be a shame to lose this great asset over a traffic jam.
