Traffic in Britain, its not going to get any better how will we cope?

I do a lot of travelling around the London and surrounding areas and am amazed at
(a) the amount of roadworks going on right now
(b) the time changing of some traffic lights is astonishing
(c) when there is an accident the road (both sides of the carriageway) can be shut for 6 hours at least.

Some horrific traffic and roadworks at the moment and in the last few weeks of driving.

There is the roadworks around junction 16 on the M25
The New roadworks around junction 9 on the M25
The roadworks on Junction 11, M11
The weeks gone by and the road still shut in London by the iMax cinema Stamford street
The bridge (is it Albert?) shut till November 2011
Months of Wimbledon Town centre crossroads on roadwork control.
Hackbridge bridge, one way traffic at a time way since Jan 2010

Don't drive in London?

Yeah, we're into three weeks of road works and HOURS of tailbacks. Someone thought it would be a good idea to fill in the underpass from the station and put traffic lights on the major through fair instead.

Genius!

hey dont think its just london! warrington has new lights everywhere even on roundabouts!
and i was told by someone in the know the lights were planned 4 years before they were put in so caused mayhem as the amount of houses built locally has doubled traffic and the schools are chocker too. Collecting the kids is a flippin nightmare with traffic and all the schools have temp classrrooms!

The traffic in London is seriously depressing, we have to plan any outings on what the traffics gonna be like - and we live outer London :(

You know whats been winding me up recently..

Traffic lights / crossings put just after the exit of a roundabout.. The most stupid thing i've ever seen.. Soon as anyone whacks the button to walk across the road, traffic starts to back up on a busy roundabout every uses to get in and out of town on.. Makes no sense.. Move the traffic lights a good 300 yards further up, if they're happy walking.. They can walk the extra bit..

Then again, work is 2-3 miles from where i live. Takes me 5 minutes.. Must not grumble.

I used to drive from Shropshire to Chester every day, nightmare.. Hour there, hour back.. More if it was a Friday before a bank holiday.

I got a mini with terrible under steer (even in warm weather) so I'll take my chances on the bike.
