I know there's an accident near the Curry Cottage at Offham, but why is the rest of the town gridlocked?
It's just taken well over an hour to get down to near the Elly and back up to Nevill, and my neighbour tells me the traffic is really bad going up Malling Hill as well.

The road was closed for a long while. I hope those involved are ok and well done to the emergency services for managing the traffic as best they could.

You're right though, Grumbleweed, more houses = more people = more cars on the roads.
