Roadworks at the top of Apache Pass

A rather simple submission, this picture was taken at the end of July and it shows the M27 Climbing Lane works on a sunny day. Since taking this photo the works have been downsized noticeably and the cameras removed.

A34 Newbury Bypass

The most disappointing road in the world?

A34 Newbury Bypass

A failed attempt to show how nasty the lay-bys are. Damn that car! You can just about make out how tight the merge is, and all the lay-bys on the by-pass are like this.

A drunken sign telling cyclists what to do at the junction, not that I have ever seen a cyclist on the road.

Junctions like these are the standard along the route. Yes, there is a road merging between the 'flag' and 'soft verge' signs.

Everyone starts moving left. How many 'true' fork signs like this are there?

The A34/A33 split at the start of the former road. I'd forgotten just how few signs there are for the split. And all the road markings have been removed!

Those two cars in the distance cut across at the last minute.

A27 Former Roundabout - Coppermine - 6590.jpg
A27 Former Roundabout

The crossroads seen here used to be a roundabout where the M27 J12 spur, A27, and an unclassified road leading to the A3 met. You can just about work out the old roundabout's alignment.

You can also see the M275 interchange in the background.

Traffic lights were added because there is a crossroads just behind that red car, ironically called Blind Lane.

A500 lay-by

The A500 Stoke D-road is great, but here there is a good 350 yards of lay-by on either side which are always packed. I'm sure they started a thread of some sort on the forums.

M275 unfinished junction

Looking over the fence to the right of this photo. The other half of the roundabout should be here, and the fence in the distance should be sliproad.

You can easily imagine this as a roundabout interchange.

The traffic light controlled sliproad (with a 50 limit).

M275

Start of 60 mph limit (was 50). Far sign reads 'No hard shoulder for two miles'. There is one, it's just narrow, and by two miles they mean 'on motorway'.

I'd hate to have to read that if I didn't know where I'm going.

Look at how the right hand part of the sign is bigger. This is just the old sign bodged up.

UPDATE! Good news, this sign has been removed!

They still call it the M27 (E)...

Look at how the right hand part of the sign is bigger. This is just the old sign bodged up, hence the VMSs being slightly out of place.

Surely there are better ways of signing this, it seems pretty rubbish.

Look at how the right hand part of the sign is bigger. This is just the old sign bodged up, hence the VMSs being out of place and the sign being pointlessly big.

J12 has to do 50 (is it really possible round that sliproad) whilst we adjust to NSL.
