Dangerous Tree Road Closure causes Traffic Chaos in Southampton

A major road had to be closed in Southampton after an inspection of a tree found it about  fall  down. A concerned resident  made the urgent  call to the council who sent out an inspector.  He deemed that  immediate  action needed to be  taken as the  tree was about to fall.

Motorists in Southampton were forced to take a detour after  the dangerous tree forced a road closure.

Kanes Hill Road was closed from Thornhill Park to it’s junction with St John Road in Hedge End Southampton while the tree was removed by specialist contractors
