By a County Press reporter

TRAFFIC delays in Lake have been blamed on drivers ignoring diversions by Isle of Wight highways PFI company Island Roads.

A spokeswoman for the company said: "We are currently undertaking work to resurface Lake Hill as part of the Highways PFI.  As this is a major route, we are working overnight to reduce congestion.

"Last night (Tuesday) however this area did become congested and the main reason for this was that many motorists were ignoring the signed diversion and attempting to bypass the work via other routes. We would urge people to follow the advertised diversion while the works – due to be completed by Friday morning – are underway."
