Philosophical Roadworks

Philosophical Roadworks

When Highways England took over from the Highways Agency, they immediately trialled what they called "a new approach to roadworks". This basically involved spending time and money putting a lot of patronising messages everywhere.

I'd never seen one before, so it came as a bit of a surprise when I was on the A40, in a stationary queue caused by new road signs being erected, and I found that it suddenly started speaking to me.

Without a doubt, these are Britain's most philosophical roadworks.

Tedious about the author bit

I write about media, exploring, heavy machinery and lists. I produce radio with an attitude accurately described as "amusingly surly".

I can't tell you how many terrible ideas I have had. But it's a lot of terrible ideas.

PS. I am not a travel blogger. But I do travel and I do blog.

Legally bland
