It was probably the worst traffic I had been in since living in the island.

Anyone travelling into Funchal from the east this morning would have face horrendous traffic and late for work or appointments.

It was all due a to a bus breaking down on the expressway I believe  at the junction of Santo Antonio in Funchal, the traffic soon built up and by 8.30am was tailing back more than 10 km, past the Caniço exit. It took almost 2.5 hours for traffic to return to normal, and many cars had over heated with the situation, causing more problems for the breakdown services.
