Whitepit Lane closed
Due to the closure of Whitepit due to roadworks we are unable to divert vehicles along this route.

We are genuinely sorry for the inconvenience caused but unfortunately have no control over this closure. We will keep you updated as work progresses and it is hoped that the road will be open by lunchtime.

Due the extreme length of the diversions in place we do anticipate delays and are in the middle of getting extra staff in to assist.
