I don't know if it was the Blackwall tunnel you are talking about but I know that the authorities have contingencies and a strategic traffic managment plan in place for such eventualities such is the high likelihood of such an event occurring and certainly I would expect that such contingencies don't take 10 hrs to implement nor does traffic diversions involve routing traffic down through the back streets of Canning town or Isle of Dogs or Greenwich.

I just wondered was the delay was because the Garda Forensics have to travel from Dublin and because it's the West of Ireland there isn't the same degree of urgency attached to getting it sorted. But also I think the traffic managment response reflected badly on both the Gardai and the County council in smacking of a knee jerk reaction to a current pressing problem rather than something that you would imagine or expect them to have a contingency plan in place for.

All the same thanks for your very considered and informative reply.
