Delays to be expected as abnormal is moved

multi vehicle shunt on blackwater road in newport causing delays

A warning has been issued to drivers of delays in and around Newport today (Friday).

The warning comes due to the movement of an abnormal load.

A specialist lorry is travelling from Fishbourne via the Wightlink ferry carrying a piece of equipment for the new Amey/Isle of Wight Council waste recycling centre on Forest Road.

Due to the size of the load, special arrangements are being made to ease its journey from the ferry to the site on the outskirts of Newport.

The slow moving vehicle will be travelling from Fishbourne, through Wootton to Fairlee Road and then Medina Way (dual carriageway) to Forest Road.
