Anger as bus blocks fast lane on A1 at Great Ponton
Motorists are being urged to be extra cautious after a bus blocked off the fast lane after using the A1 junction at Great Ponton.
Mick Musson was working at the Blue Horse Inn pub in Great Ponton on Friday when he saw the bus drive straight across the road to access the northbound lane on the other side.
He said: “While waiting to turn north, the coach completely blocked off the fast lane. Traffic had to screech to a stop. He had to wait there for quite awhile before he could go."
A bus belonging to the same company was following close behind until Mick told the driver to turn around at Colsterworth, adding: “He wasn't happy but they could have caused a serious accident.”
Mick has lived behind the Blue Horse Inn in Great Ponton since 1984 and says that he has lost count of the amount of road accidents he has witnessed at the same junction.
