Traffic chaos in Evesham
TRAFFIC ground to a halt around Evesham this morning as work at the Twyford roundabout just outside the town forced people to use the congested Abbey Bridge road.
Road works on the town’s A46 bypass are taking place this month but are due to be finished before September when the Abbey Bridge is scheduled to be completely closed for ten weeks.
But frustrated motorists contacted the Journal today, with one having spent an hour trying to get from Tesco in Worcester Road to his home in Offenham.
Colonel Tony Ward said he was headed towards the roundabout but turned around and went through the town centre because the traffic did not seem to be moving.
“That took an hour,” said Colonel Ward. “It is ridiculous. It is just going to put everyone off coming to Evesham. Here we are trying to get it sorted but we have to be turning everybody off.”
