  • Having just travelled 'our' roads in the last two weeks at 'peak' travelling times, I suggest the people whom are responsible for any investment, upgrading or dare I suggest 'improvement' in our 'antiquated' so called Road Infrastructure need to actually see and experience what I have in the last two weeks !! We are paying £50 million a day to be a member of an UN Economic European Market, which we need to spend on our Road & Rail Infrastructure, go and drive in Europe, see for yourselves !, their roads are 'modern' and being well maintained with OUR Money !!
