Coles Lane Closure Leads To St John’s Hill Blockage

Coles Lane is shut until 19th May for resurfacing.

There is an official diversion, but the St John’s Hill stretch of the B3091 was still blocked for around three hours after an HGV got stuck making an unofficial detour.

Hill resident Peter Shouler is campaigning for a 7.5-tonne weight limit between St James Street and Bimport. He tells Alfred that he had anticipated vehicles getting stuck whilst Coles Lane is closed.
