Another two months of this?

It's not just Polish and Romanian lorry drivers mis-reading the diversion signs. This one is from Yeovil!
Yesterday at Shires Garage junction we met this truck trying to reverse out of the A372. And it looks as if we will have to endure another two months of traffic chaos, with Bere Wall closed until August 9th.

SCC have now posted a press release, trying to make the best story out of bad news. There is no question that the work needs to be done, and to be completed as quickly as possible, so that we can get back to some semblance of normality, but there seems to be little sympathy in official circles for the effect it has on the village and the people who live here.
