Emergency gas repair works are causing heavy delays on one of the main roads into Cowes today (Saturday).
The affected works are causing tailbacks on Parkhurst Road between the entrance to St Mary’s Hospital and the junction with Nicholson Street at the bottom of Horsebridge Hill.
This coupled with delays on both of the Red Funnel ferry services means those heading home after the Cowes Week celebrations are facing significant upheaval in doing so.
Delays and tailbacks of around 30 minutes are currently being experienced, with Southern Vectis advising of longer journey times on its Route 1 buses in both directions.
