Dash-cam video of gridlocked traffic: Can you spot yourself?

This dash-cam video from Newport to East Cowes shows the gridlock of traffic heading into the centre of the Island today.

gridlocked traffic

Road users from East Cowes and Cowes suffered long delays on the roads into Newport this morning (Monday) due to more utility company roadworks and the suspension of the Cowes floating bridge.

The floating bridge was due to be reinstated at the end of March, but has now been delayed until early May.

Gridlocked traffic
This dashcam video below, captured and shared with us by Dan Morgan, shows him passing in the opposite direction of the gridlocked traffic.

He managed to travel from Halberry Lane, Newport to up past Barton Manor, East Cowes in just under six minutes, before the flow of traffic in the other direction stopped.

Indeed, several hours later, Southern Vectis are still reporting delays

Were you in the traffic jam? Can you spot yourself in Dan’s video? He certainly passed a lot of traffic!

That is ridicules. The only good thing on that video was the music. Simple answer to that traffic tail back, turn off Coppins Bridge traffic lights. Give way to your right. I bet that’ll sort that traffic out.


It wasn’t the coppins bridge traffic lights causing the problem it was temporary traffic lights set up just before seaclose.
