motorway destruction
« on: April 30, 2010, 09:32:17 PM »
To add to a full list of events, I noticed today as I passed the Membrey motorway services, that for the past month at least, the services have been restricting lane width, speed restrictions etc, while they put in a new concrete barrier, in the middle of the motorway, instead of the current metal or wire barriers, this new barrier must be at least 2 or 3 miles long, and today I see, they are now taking the barrier down, bit by bit and humping it off somewhere else, what it must be costing is beyond belief, have they this much money to waste or is the concrete the wrong sort !!

I thought that wire was the bee's knees, cheap(er) and effective.

Probably melting the barrier down for aircraft carriers..
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

Barrier replacement programmes are happending here in Swindon too in Shaw and Nine Elms ward. People are commenting that the barriers being replaced are being replaced with ones at double the length. They are making exactly the same comments as you about the cost.
