Whilst basking in my air conditioned office I was flicking through the local paper, Daily Echo and read about our locals roads melting during our current glorious heat wave.

Apparently the road surface was badly damaged at Cobden Bridge, near Bitterne Park, as the sunshine caused the bitumen to go soft.  Tyre tracks could be seen on the carriageway and parts of the road surface had come off completely showing the pavement with chippings.

The road temperature has believed to reached between 60c - 70c. Southampton City Council have already contacted engineers to examine the road.

They have advised there is no need to panic and as soon as there is a risk to life or property they will be doing something about it.  I hope it doesn't get that bad!
