Traffic gridlock in Midhurst

Delivery lorry adds to traffic chaos
Delivery lorry adds to traffic chaos

TRAFFIC is moving slowly again through the centre of Midhurst after being gridlocked at midday when a huge lorry pulled up to make deliveries to the Bepton Road garage.

It pulled up in the Petersfield Road shortly after negotiating the roundabout at the A272 and A286 junction.

The centre of Midhurst quickly became gridlocked with relentless traffic bound for the Festival of Speed backed up the length of North Street.

The Spar articulated lorry caused added to the traffic chaos for around half an hour.

But it has now moved off and the heavy traffic is once again on the move.
