Portsmouth is already congested with traffic problems and heavily populated, in fact I understand it to be the most populated city outside of London. Conbined with the fact that we're an island, it's hard to understand why the city has been chosen for the access route for the cable. Surely, there are more rural routes tgat would cause less disruption - even coming in at Hayling Island and travelling up the west side with very few, if any, dwellings and rioads makes far more sense. Portsmouth has a popular foitball team that already causes traffic chaos in the winter and is a popular seaside resort that equally causes chaos in the summer months! Disruption to huge numbers of residents and commuters could be avoided if plans were diverted.
