Snow and ice have arrived. We’re not isolated yet by the weather conditions. We are though, being cut off by bridge works on the only main tributary road. It was arbitrarily closed by the contractors, (they had over-run on their contract time), this closure being during the rush to work, and people trying to make hospital appointments. the closure caused delays of about 2.5 hours. Anyone travelling after 11.30am probably got to their destination without too much disruption.
