UPDATED: BROKEN DOWN LORRY CAUSES TRAVEL DELAYS AT BINSTEAD

Published at:

A broken down articulated lorry is causing travel delays between Newport and Ryde this afternoon (Wednesday).

The vehicle has broken down on the mini roundabout at the top of Binstead Hill – the main road between the Island’s largest towns.

It’s thought that a hose line has been severed, resulting in the air brakes automatically locking on.

Avoid the area for the time being! Not easy when they have the downs road closed
