I walked along there on Saturday and in half an hour 15 cars passed me, all of them illegally going through the barriers which someone has pulled open.
Yet for those who don’t believe it, the road is crumbling away and since many of the cars going through are 4x4s and vans there could be further erosion. Some even shout abuse at a workman who has to keep putting one of the barriers back.
Repairs can’t be done until the water subsides so those too desperate to go the long way round, are going to be made to. Weird.
