Hogarth flyover closed after car accident

17 September, 2020 / by Matt Smith

The Hogarth Flyover was closed today (17 September) after a car accident which resulted in the closure of the northbound lane.

A red four door Vauxhall Astra appears to have misjudged the width of the entry point onto the flyover on the A316 Burlington Lane, which takes traffic northbound over the Hogarth roundabout, and ended up being part-suspended on a bollard after mounting the kerb.

The road is narrowed to prevent wider vehicles getting onto the flyover.
