    Anyone else stuck on the M40 yesterday evening? I didn't have the traffic radio on last night so got on the M40 from the M25 blissfully unaware that there was an incident around J4/5 which resulted in only one lane open. It took me 6 (yes 6) hours to get from Vauxhall to Bicester!!!!!! :mad: :mad:

    Would have been, had I not picked up the Traffic Info as I left the office ! Managed to add 40 miles to my journey in order to avoid the hold up, but only added 30 mins .... so not too bad in all ! Feel sorry for anybody that was stuck in it !

    But come on, how often is the M40 screwed? - not often is the answer.

    You're right, it is usually quite good except between J9/10 though I never go there as I always get on/off at either 9 or 10.

    Thing is though, I have never seen the M40 blocked this bad and had I turned on the radio, I could have avoided it. I was having one of those bad days in the office and in the car I just wanted peace and quiet.
