A tractor’s trailer has overturned on the main Godshill to Rookley road this evening. The road was completely blocked in both directions near Bow Bridge as you exit the village to the north.
The main A3020 Newport Road was completely blocked for some four hours with traffic having to make major detours in both directions. There were no buses in Godshill during this time.
Apparently this tractor and trailer had just passed through Godshill on its way to Rookley. Had this happened moments earlier, it could have overturned in the middle of Godshill. Locals report that these large tractors and trailers are often seen careering through the middle of Godshill at alarming speeds, much as all traffic tends to do these days.
