The Order does not apply to a vehicle while being used in an emergency for fire brigade, ambulance, police or coastguard purposes or a vehicle being used for carrying out the works

Alternative Routes

The alternative routes for traffic during the prohibition are lengthy therefore traffic will be held and allowed through the works periodically when safe to do so under convoy conditions.
