M1 rant

Those bloody road works on the M1 are an absolute pain in the arse! 15 months in they are at the stage of remodelling the junction I use and, as a consequence, it takes ages to get onto the motorway. For example, last Wednesday it took me over an hour, that’s right, over 60 minutes to get from my house to the slip road onto the M1 – a total distance of about 2 miles! In fact the tailbacks were so bad the whole of the local area was gridlocked all morning. Then on Friday (with additional thanks to an accident further down the M1) my journey time into work (19 miles) took 1 hour 50 minutes. On a good day with no road works or accidents that same journey would typically take me 35 – 40 minutes. It’s beyond a joke, frankly.
