    M25 - the 'Fast drive' is over

    I travel on M25 everyday and it's never been great, especially around Heathrow(J16). A few weeks back they started to do some work between J16 & J17, but I've never paid any attention to it until this morning when I saw several pillars for those average speed cameras.
    Anyway, I've searched the internet today only to find out, that they are doing widening between J16 & J19 - for following 58weeks. I'm scared to even think what it will do with, already bad, traffic.

    Damned if they do, damned if they don't!

    Yes it will make things worse whilst its happening, but there is no magic formula to widen roads. Just hope the widening will be enough..... but I doubt it will.

    Good point, but it doesn't surprise me :thumbsup:

    The averaging cameras might actually help traffic whilst the works are being carried out - traffic tends to travel more steadily (and faster) as everyone keeps at a steady 50mph pace,

    I think they should do it, but not only 4 lanes - make it 5

    Good traffic on Monday?!? Mondays & Thursdays are the biggest nightmare for me. It's all about how people drive (changing lanes, speeding up and then heavy breaking etc.)

    The best one so far was lorry in the fast lane on the m4 a couple of weeks ago ... WTH was he thinking :x

    Better paid jobs? Where??? The cost of living is sky high! Can't afford to fly anywhere, even if they are cheaper! Can't move even if I wanted to, houses aren't selling!!

    I live near junction 19, parents live at 18 and husband works near 17 so the next 58 weeks are going to be fun! :whistling:
