Katy Jane Nicholson said: “I was at the Golden Way roundabout and it was gridlocked.
“I went in the other lane but it was the same. There were police and cones out near the slip road.
“Strand Road is like it normally would be at 5pm. Traffic everywhere as people can’t get over the flyover.”
The road is still being cleared as of 11.30am on Saturday.
