DRIVERS are being urged to avoid the Peartree Interchange, as an earlier accident continues to cause problems.
A lorry and a combine harvester collided on the southbound carriageway of the A34 at Peartree at about 1.40pm.
The combine harvester struck a barrier over the A34 entry slip road, which has been closed ever since.
Traffic on the A34 is currently restricted to one lane and is expected to be completely closed for recovery of the combine harvester at around 7pm.
It is causing heavy congestion around the area.
Specialist equipment is required to recover the combine harvester and then the barrier will be repaired.
