I can't believe Alastair Chaplin thinks you will get a better flow of traffic using one lane instead of two.

All the traffic going into town will now sit in the same lane as the cars that go into Winchester Road and because Winchester Road nearly always backs up to the Memorial roundabout traffic going into town will be stuck in that same lane.

When traffic gets back to normal and the traffic backs up onto the M3

I dread to think how dangerous that would be coming around a bend at up to 70 mph then hitting stationary traffic.

I hope you used the Avenue on the morning of Wednesday this week Alastair, it was gridlock.
