After the fire I don’t get why they closed that part of the roundabout going over the M11. Was no obstructions. No other emergency vehicles on scene. I was late for work and lost £35 for the first hour missed. The car was parked on the pavement and both lanes clear. It made so many people late where they were going. Vehicles coming up the A414 from Ongar had to go southbound on the M11 if they wanted to or not causing delays on that too. The road closure was unnecessary and disruptive to so many.
