Gas repair in High Street causes traffic queues

The fact that the High Street is being dug up to repair a gas leak at the same time that Wyndham Way is closed for resurfacing is not good news for shoppers or motorists.

Apparently there is a gas leak outside Fowlers Florists and that's why the road is being dug up and there are lights.

However as the High Street is the main diversion during the work to Wyndham Way, its causing real traffic congestion. Are you one of the unlucky motorists/traders or shoppers facing long queues in the High Street?

    Work on Wyndham Way is to be suspended tomorrow, Tuesday 14th and the road will be open all day to allow the gas work in the High Srteet to be completed.

    If that was the case why did'nt the police come down and take over to move the traffic on?

    After doing some shopping I had to go to Bristol. I had to go up to West Hill via Nore Road down via the Police HQ to make my way to Bristol.

    There was nobody working on it at 11am this morning, and a badly and illegally p[arked car at this point made matters worse.
