Crane transporter causes traffic delays
11:30am Tuesday 8th January 2013 in News
A LORRY transporting a crane caused traffic disruption in Weymouth town centre.
Police attended King Street after a HGV vehicle broke down on the corner of the road at 9.30am on Monday.
Motorists faced traffic congestion for more than two hours before recovery arrived.
“We came down to help the traffic flow on the junction where motorists can travel in three directions.”
Lorry driver Rob Howell said: “I broke down right on the junction which was annoying because I was so close to my destination.
“It caused traffic chaos at first because it is such a dangerous point in the road.”
John Davies, of the Sea Chef Fish and Chips, said: “It is a very dangerous place to break down.
“The traffic did build up the street but eased off when the police arrived to help. Luckily, no other problems were caused.”
