A week ago, a huge mound of dirt stopped vehicles from using the new West End road to connect the main drag to the Barrinche, which spills out over by the tourist police station and Woody’s Grocery. On Monday, only a telephone pole stood in the way. Yesterday it was gone and cars were freely exploring the new access road.

The rickety bridge isn’t the only shortcut anymore:

Now, getting to the north end of West End is going to be quicker and easier.

And that means you have no excuse not to get down to Land’s End for Trivia Night next week!

Here are the deets, courtesy of SOL Foundation dude/former Oasis manager and all-around badass Mark Flanagan:
