    Heavy rain and gales today? Where? I went across to Poole this morning and it was a lovely balmy day with temp about 11 Celsius and no wind and I sat in the sunshine.
    Where are the Echo's offices, in a dungeon?

    I was held up in Barrack road around 4-30 by temporary traffic lights by KFC. This was causing tailbacks then.(Both ways). They might be gone by now but caused it initially. If the Avon Causeway is closed that will cause extra traffic though Christchurch too.

    Traffic regularly queues by the Hospital because there are people from the Courts, Ageas50, Village, Teachers, the Hospital multi-story and the main Hospital car park all trying to get out of Deansleigh Road, there is just too much traffic for this small stretch of road to handle.

    This is made worse by inconsiderate drivers travelling Christchurch way from the Cooperdean. They see that there is a queue along Castle Lane East and so decide to try and jump this by turning left at the hospital, doing a u-turn on the 1st roundabout and then continuing towards Christchurch. This completely blocks that roundabout and everyone trying to just make it out onto Castle Lane. There are other ways of getting to Christchurch but only one way out of Deansleigh Road!

    Something needs to be done to help manage traffic flow, this has been a problem for too long!

    p.s...the picture supplied by Corin shows some of these drivers doing exactly that!

    You will notice in the background that there is space in the two lanes for people wanting to turn right onto Castle Lane towards the Cooperdean but we simply can't reach these lanes because of drivers blocking the roundabout!
