MOTORISTS are facing severe traffic on a busy Hampshire route due to emergency roadworks.

One lane of the Totton bypass is shut heading eastbound just before the Redbridge Causeway.

Bluestar buses said its services may be re-routed if there are significant delays.

Currently a traffic map from information service Romanse shows traffic eastbound on the Totton bypass and Spicers Hill, as well as on the A2326 southbound.

It is not known when the works will be completed.
