It seems to me that pretty much everywhere I drive these days there are roadworks of some sort or another. Not only do these take an inordinate length of time to complete (job preservation I suspect), they are often il-timed and badly planned. Reading. Not a town I have ever liked mainly because the traffic system there is utter rubbish. I've never driven in or out without a hold up. I positively hate the place and have for many years. Avoid it at all costs except recently I was forced to go there and amongst the mire of poor traffic management there are road works. Motorcycle if there is ever a next time. Brighton. Majorly unfriendly to the motorist. Speed cameras along the front set to flash at 31mph! M3 junction 2 onwards. Roadworks due to end in December after 18 months of work. A320 between Woking and Ottershaw (McLaren). Shut for three weeks for roadworks. Pyrford to Old Woking - rolling Gas works which are taking forever. So, anyone have any ridiculous job creation schemes / road works in their areas?
