Road Destruction Season

If anyone is planning a road trip in Britishland over the next 3-4 years, be warned that the Brits have released their planned scheme of major roads to be affected by construction, improvements, closures etc.  Here’s the map:

It’s been a while since I looked at a U.K. roadmap… but isn’t that map essentially ALL the major roads in Britishland?

Looks like the M6 is going to be cataclysmic;  however, as said highway leads to both Liverpool and  Glasgow, I can’t see why this would be a problem for all right-thinking drivers.

No man should.


  1. The weekend before last I drove the family to Brighton for a few days, 3.5 hours, 5.5 hours back.
    Last week went to Goodwood Races, 5 hours there, (the satnav, for some reason, took us through the Pleiocene Era) 3 hours back, (via the 20th century), all of those trips should have taken no more than 2 hours apiece. If this is normal, what’s cataclysmic going to be like?

  2. Good to see the Daily Fail stops at the border. But of course we have roadworks: our motorways are so heavily used that they need constant maintenance.

    Anyway, the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route has just been opened and it’s a thing of beauty. A lovely drive. Now all they need to do is extend the dual carriageway to Inverness.
