Well it never really closed for business, just traffic.
But finally, after a gruelling 16 weeks or so - the carriageway works are now complete and the road was reopened for through traffic as of early this morning.
Why not get yourself down there this bank holiday weekend and take a look at the results - and while your there, show the local shops a little love. I’m sure they could do with it!
[if someone PM’s me a picture of the road open with traffic flowing, preferably with a bus in it - I’ll add it to this post, which should also get the message out over the various Twitter/Facebook etc.]
