An eyewitness caught in queuing traffic has taken a picture of the barriers and cones in the road.

She said: "It was horrendous.

"There was long queuing traffic which was frustrating as we hadn't been given any warning."

And Google Maps is showing a dark red line indicating the queuing problems.

The roadworks are for utility repair and maintenance works, beginning today and continuing until Wednesday, May 25.
