Vale Road works

Managed to get up to the works for a look-see. Yep full closure was necessary for the work they've done. A trench on the approach into Gilgal from the lights and a splayed trench across both through lanes on Vale Road. Looks like they were closing up this morning so should be back to 'normal' tomorrow.

Anyway I've filled up with petrol yesterday and plan on giving myself extra time to get through the Holts. So long as they don't shut-down Mitton Street as they apparently did on Friday at least getting back of an evening may not be too bad with both the reduced traffic heading down Hartlebury Road and Gilgal. I'm guessing we'll still get people stopping as they approach Mitton Street to check for oncoming traffic though.
