WSP being innovative? :shock: (Sorry, I'm still bitter and holding a grudge after 4 years :lol: )

Denmark are also in the DDI game, having recently rebuilt an interchange on the E20 at Odense. GMaps Link

Didn't get to play on it on my last drive through as it was around midnight, and I had just had fun and games driving into central Copenhagen looking for a Covid test centre (on a Friday night to boot!). Loads of Sabristic stuff along that motorway, including the Great Belt bridge and the Oresund Crossing.
Don't worry it threw me as well! WSP aren't known for innovation :D
No, but then look at what we’re calling innovation - a proven junction design that has been in use in other countries for decades. As innovation goes it’s about on a par with copying someone else’s homework.
Brutal but accurate!

Once again, the perfect candidate for the application of the GG104 risk assessment process (and presumably exactly what it was designed for) - a Type B scheme at worst given the existence of extensive international experience.
