Just wondering if anyone knows whats going on with the road works on the Moreton Spur. For a few weeks now the 2 lanes on the off slip for Upton from J1 on the M53 has been coned off, and down to one lane.

Ive not yet seen any signs of work, nor is there an indication of what they are doing, why, and when it will be finished... think

Any info?

if you take notice of the signs, the lanes are coned off because the road surface is dangerous. Probably lose tarmac or something, had a couple of smashed windscreens and decided its safer to close the lanes until they get resurfaced. As it probably wasnt planned, they can't just resurface a road the next day lol.

Methinks they should have put a 40 limit in place between the cones though, and the gap between them is too small, should have eaten into the closes lanes tbh for safety, a small mistake and your going to be hitting a wall of cones.

Huge PITA!!

If you get stuck behind Miss Daisy out of the tunnel then you're taking 30 mins longer to get home!

Never noticed those Matt - will have a close looky next time I go through there. TBH I thought there was noting wrong with the surface over there (we are talking J2 here - I know how bad the road fell apart at J1).

Yer, J2 mate (only moreton spur I know haha). Either its a bad road surface, or a copper had a bump along there, and rather than take the rap for bad driving, they blamed it on the road surface lol.
