I READ reporter James Robinson’s Echo report of Monday, March 2 with interest about the 50 mph speed restrictions in place on the M27 near Southampton.

The speed limit from junction 3 towards junction 5 goes from 50 mph to 70 mph then back to 50 mph.

In my opinion it would be safer and make sense to enforce the 50 mph for the entire stretch of the M27 .

On the subject on motoring in the south why does Southampton not have a park and ride scheme like our neighbours in Winchester and Portsmouth.

In fact, doesn’t Winchester have two?

There is a saying it’s never too late so let’s put the wheels in motion for our own park and ride in Southampton
