THE CLOSURE of the bridge at Woodmill Lane caused logjam around some of Bitterne Park.

As cars diverted to other river crossing points it also increased congestion on single lane Northam Bridge.

Traffic on Bitterne Road West was worse than ever.

Cars were sitting trapped in one lane misery, next to an empty lane.

With lockdown easing, and with Woodmill Lane shut, it’s time to scrap the single lane.
