    Why is the diversion taking vehicles via Byfield Church or up to Eydon, surely there will be access to Membris Way and Phipps Road?

      Yes, it seems silly doesn’t it. I suspect it’s because diversions are always signed along a route that ‘has to be suitable for the type of traffic that would normally use the closed section’ and this is usually interpreted to mean if an A road is closed, only use A roads for the diversion and so on. I saw this terrible example in Dorset with a 41 mile diversion to get around a 20 metre road works!!!!!!
