traffic report: if you are

traffic report: if you are thinking of travelling through this part of the Sussex coast anytime in the next few days…FORGET IT. it’s hell out there. the B2166, A27 and A29 are all completely shut, so all the traffic has been shoved onto the A259, with the result that Bognor is gridlocked, no-one going anywhere. it took my brother ten minutes to get from the Hotham Park roundabout to the Butlins roundabout. that’s a distance of roughly 200 yards.
of course, this is having a disastrous effect on local trade. I went late night shopping in Chichester last night. given that there is only one more late shopping night before Christmas, it was amazingly quiet – I don’t think I have ever seen it so quiet on a late shopping night – terrible.
