CORONA CRISIS----SO WHY ARE TRUNK ROADS SHUT?

Posted '1:08pm bells' Thorsday 26th March 2020

Aa did mee normal 440 mile 'night truck run' to Redditch in Worcestershire and back to Team Valley (Gatesheed) last neet (to pick carpets and floorin' up) and the roads were dead quiet, with aboot a qwaataa of the normal traffic on the motorways and trunk roads.

The one thing that annoyed me woz the fact that BOTH the A1M in Coonty Durham northbound and the A19 near Smogland on Tees northbound, were closed owerneet for roadworks!  
These are 2 parallel roads that run north and the fact that the highways agency had closed BOTH of them at the same time, in this time of crisis, had mee dumb
-struck!

Most of the traffic on the roads were of supermarket food lorries and trucks carryin' urgent medical supplies to hospitals etc!

To slow them doon (and me!) by shuttin' major roads iz CRIMINAL at this time of crisis and the Highways Agency should be ashamed of themsels!
If roads need to be shut for repairs, then why (oh why!) can't they shut them on alternative nights, so that the trucks can get through, one way or the other?

You don't need to be the 'Brain of Britain' to work this one oot!
