Road Works.

Recommended Posts

Maybe a bit obscure the link between road works and house prices but I've been doing a lot of driving last few weeks and the amount of road works about is incredible.

Are the torys spanking a fortune on filling in holes to try and get a ore-election boost and ( the link ) keep their housing bubble going ?

It does seem that way. I do think spending money on roadworks is a win win (as long as they are necessary, and not just busy work!). It creates jobs, and improves the infrastructure for commuting etc.

Where I am there is a big push to get the A27 widened and sorted out.... hopefully the tories will give it the green light

We know that Red George needs to add 7% of GDP to UK aggregate debt every year to generate 1-2% GDP growth and maintain the semblance of recovery. He was relying on the private sector to do some of the carrying in the run in to the GE but If the private sector can't/won't re-leverage then he'll have to do the job himself.

Everywhere I've been seems to have exploded with pre-election road works.

Roll up, roll up....Buy your votes here...Buy your votes here...

Had to take a 50 mile odd diversion off the A1 from Lincoln to Peterborough other night. a14 closed near Cambridge, bunch of other local road closures.

At least they seem to confine them to night.

Couple of years back, noticed roadworks every night for about 18 months at one junction on the M65. Cones for miles each side, floodlights, the lot. Every weekday night, whatever the weather, for about 18 months. Could never see what they'd done the day after.

Seeing lots here near Bath.

Two separate routes into the city had two lots of road works and two road closures, one with its own private toll road(on going), the other a temporary closure for two weeks.

Not only roads as we went through a spell where several rail workers were staying at our hotel for a few weeks.

Also had cause to travel to Manchester and M5 and M5 were full of road works, - put 2 hours onto journey!
