The Roadworks sign has disappeared from Longhill Lane, and no more closures appear to be planned in the next few days.

Longhill Lane was closed again on the morning of the 18th, but opened later on. The One Network website shows it should be closed until the 20th, but a sign up the lane informs us that it will be closed from the 20th for 5 days - confusing!! The sign may be linked to white painted markings which have appeared on the road just on the Hankelow side of Santosha kennels.
