Traffic and Closures
One lane remains closed on the A31 westbound between Southampton and Ringwood due to a burst water pipe that is under repair.
The lane closure has been causing severe delays with tailbacks as long as seven miles at times and those travelling the route should expect delays.
It is expected that repairs will not be completed until Monday.
Bus delays, as the service 60 is taking a diversion due to the emergency closure of Napier Road, Hamworthy. It is diverting between Lulworth Avenue and Rockley Park via Lake Avenue and Lake Drive.

The Met Office had previously issued yellow weather warning throughout the week of ice and snow, but have now been taken down as there was small amounts of sun seeping through.
Slippery roads and pathways are still treacherous, so gritters have been out and trying to help.
The weekend is set to continue the cold weather, with low temperatures of 6 degrees. However, wind speed and humidity will make the outside feel like -2 degrees.
