    Southbound?

    "So let me ride on the Southbound
    Back to where I came from I don't care just where I am
    So let me ride on the Southbound
    and put me off somewhere near Birmingham."

    LOL

    Actually it's a little known fact that Charley Pride was referring to the M6 Toll when he sang 'put me off somewhere near Birmingham', inspired as he was by the interminable southbound delays between Wolverhampton and the M5 junction.

    I just thought it may help somebody heading for a ferry to make alternative arrangements, as it wasn't the usual accident but bridge damage. Anyway, they seem to have done a good job as I heard when out before it was now open, still delays though.
