A27 Mansbridge Road (Southampton)

Isn't the road quiet today. Little over twenty years ago before the gap in the M27 was plugged this was the south coast trunk route!

A334 Charles Watts Way

Heading outbound from the Kanes Hill Roundabout towards Jct 7 of the M27. The local transport plan will see this road widened to S2+1, although D2 would be better, as you get long traffic queues forming in both directions; inbound caused by a single set of Southampton's traffic lights at the junction of Thornhill Park Road and Hinkler Road, which don't give enough time to A334 traffic in rush hour and create horrendous delays.

Former A335 Wide Lane, Southampton

Looking north along Wide Lane, formerly the A335 until Stoneham Way was built in the late 1980s. The road is quite knackered, although it may not be so evident at this particular location.

Portswood Road in early summer 1974
A nostalgic shot of this area of Southampton nearly 35 years ago. View believed to be Portswood high road looking towards the city centre. Originally a Kodak ektachrome slide but recently digitally scanned. The car nearest the camera is a Vauxhall Viva (Mk2). Rear entrance double-deckers and two man operation (driver + ticket collector) have long since disappeared from public transport in Southampton.

A3024 Bursledon Road

A new set of traffic lights has been installed at the junction with Orpen Road. At the same time the old footbridge has been removed. The council have taken a backward step here, as the traffic lights don't have meshed lenses that stop the lenses from reflecting sunlight.

The Augustine Road part of Southampton's home zone. Parts of it are a bit of a mess to be honest!

Level Crossing, or not

Apparently there is a level crossing with automatic barrier and warning lights ahead. Not from what I can see; just a modern high security gate that is opened and closed manually. A sign from the past in Redbridge, Southampton?
