just on google maps trying to suggest how my wife gets home from work - all alternate routes look pretty much grid locked (again!), good luck if you are using Woodseats or Twentywell Lane

 

Its crazy they dont need to close the road like they have

Depends where you're coming from and going to. I  needed to get from hope to meadowhead, Instead of going via Abbey Lane I went over owler bar, through Holmesfield to bradway, then to meadowhead, and barely saw any traffic at all

I cycled the full length of Bocking Lane at 5:15 on Wednesday. It was closed to traffic at the time and there were no obstructions of any type in the carriageway and no indication as to why it was closed! Had they forgotten to re-open it after an earlier closure at Meadowhead roundabout?

So you're admitting to ignoring  road closure signage,  failing to comply with TRO under RTRA 84 prohibiting traffic using the road.

Don't worry once I'd pushed a few people with push chairs off the pavement  and skittled an old codger there was no problem.....

since friday most people in cars and vans are ignoring the closed road sign and continuing to drive through me included it was a bad idea to close it, somebody moved the closed road sign to the side so it cant be seen until you turn onto bocking lane .

Just passed the junction in question and seen the 2 big holes where Bocking Lane meets  Abbey Lane, but now they have put another sign across the road so vehicles now cannot turn left from Abbey Lane to go up Bocking Lane, even for access.  Looking up Bocking Lane, as far as I can see there is still no obstruction.  Very long queues on both Backing Lane and Abbey Lane, so I'd avoid the area if you can!
