Virgin in Woking can't access https://vehicletax.service.gov.uk/

This is strange. https://vehicletax.service.gov.uk/ times out in woking.
other sites work fine.  
same url works fine on my phone and using a vpn. Works fine on virgin on Rugby. Works fine on BT, and other fibre broadband providers.

I've tried different DNS, Virgin's own, Google 8.8.4.4 and 1.1.1.1

I've seen this problem in several other posts over time. 

https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/ says it's just me

Can someone using virgin in Woking / Woodham try this to see if it's only me.

I'm seeing lots of loss at hop 8 ldn-bb4-link.telia.net. I don't know who to call. 

8. ldn-bb4-link.telia.net 50.3%

telia is a service carrier, good luck getting to speak to any of their support, isn't the first time telia has messed things up royally, had massive issues with cloudflare, WoW etc.
