A CRASH involving two vehicles closed Cherry Orchard Road in Rochford for five hours today.

The road was closed in both directions between Hall Road and Eastwoodbury Lane, near the Britannia Business Park.

A red Nissan Micra and a red Peugeot 207 were involved in the incident, which left oil spilt over the carriageway.

A woman was taken to Southend Hospital after suffering minor leg injuries.

The road was closed until 1.30pm as the local council cleared the oil.

So a vital road is closed for at least 6 hours over a non-injury crash? This is one of the big problems of our time - the police close a road for hours at the drop of a hat, with 90% of them standing about scratching their arses. Meanwhile the travelling public fume; appointments are missed; business loses out. We need a Keep the Traffic Flowing Tsar!

Yes, why does the road need to be closed for so long?

Particularly bad today i suspect with Sutton Road closure, and then Southend Road from tomorrow.

re: Sutton Road - why doesnt the signage say its only closed from around 9am -3.30pm, not the whole 4 days? I had to find that out from the bus website! i detoured to get to work this morning so no reason!

And a lovely day to you too John.

I dont know about anyone else, but I'm interested as to if anyone can tell us why this road, or any other road is closed for so long in particular circumstances - what are they doing etc
