We closed the carriageway last night so we could move in the equipment necessary to carry out the clean-up operation and our hope was to finish this work last light. Unfortunately due to the amount and type of oil on the road this we were not able to finish this work and the carriage way is still contaminated and unsafe so we have had to leave the lane closed.
The decision was taken to reinstate the road closure from 9.30am to finish the clean-up which has now been done. There is some damage to the road surface which they are repairing now and the road will be fully open shortly.
We undated all of our system which feed the live traffic information and sat navs, we circulated the information via social media and to the local radio stations.
I can only apologies for the delays this caused and that some people did not receive the information but safety must always come first.
