Outside the marginals

A commentary on the politics that followed the UK 2010, 2015 & 2017 elections (and THAT referendum)

A1 closed overnight for resurfacing work

This needs wide knowledge given that the A1 (a.k.a. The Great North Road) is such a major road.

The Highways Agency said the stretch between Fenwick and West Mains crossroads will be closed between 20:00 and 06:00 GMT.

Traffic lights and diversions will be in place while the work is carried out.

The Agency said the work was essential and apologised for the inconvenience to motorists. No date for the completion of the resurfacing has been given.
BBC News website, 9 November 2015 : A1 at Fenwick closed overnight for resurfacing work

To many the idea that the A1 (in places a four lane motorway) will be totally closed seems barely credible – even if this is only overnight.  But what if the works over-run into the rush hour – it would be chaos!

But this is a BBC story in 2015 and it’s not April the 1st.
