I was driving down the Fosse Way today from a few days in Leicester and normally the Moreton and Stow towns are very slow moving and sometimes I take a detour around Batsford. Today I had my Garmin and IPhone monitoring traffic and both towns were showing clear. So I passed through Moreton quite smoothly and things were looking sufficiently good that I decided not to take my usual detour. All went well until the uphill section leading towards Stow. The the road had been closed to all traffic. The options were turn left along a narrow lane signed “unsuitable for long vehicles “ or right along an equally narrow lane with diverted traffic coming down.
The poor “ tuggers” in front had committed to the left hand lane before seeing the signage. By then the traffic build up prevented their retreat. I went to the right. Phew. Glad to be solo. And throughout Google maps and Garmin stayed green!
