On another note - other cruise ships will be going to Liverpool instead of Southampton if the city doesn't sort their traffic out soon.

I witnessed first hand the complete traffic chaos that is Southampton docks at the moment and saw lots of stressed passengers in cars and walking/waiting for buses, taxis etc! Saw a lot of crew and delivery lorries stuck too!

Also another missed opportunity as I could/should have snapped some better photos!

Rant over!

These were the ships in...

Saga Pearl II, Saga Ruby and Arcadia

Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth

It was good to see that crane at the end of the car park. Looks like that area is being refurbished at last. Hopefully those fences blocking one of the best views in the city will be removed soon!!

Good article Mark. The other thing that clogs up the roads are the cars going from one dock gate to the other for boading on vehicle carriers. Plus Eurocargo Salerno has taken up a bertth for months now and the port does nothing to rid that.

Should have been down there myself but ended up in Hospital for three days, it would have been chaos trying to park or move along the roads.
