On the road again…

Over the last couple of days Jan and I have travelled many miles along motorways and trunk roads. The thing that most stood out for me were the road works. They were everywhere, narrowing the carriageway, blocking off motorway lanes and, on one occasion, closing a major road entirely (the A50) necessitating a detour (a brief one, thankfully).  Inevitably, all of our journeys took longer; fortunately they didn’t cause us to be late to any of our appointments (I always insist in leaving in “good” time).

All these road works were surrounded by temporary barriers and especially, in their thousands, traffic cones.  I did wonder what would happen if there ever is a shortage of cones, if there’s insufficient to “protect” the workforce. Maybe the number of roads being dug up would be reduced, meaning fewer delays. Just a thought…
