A stranded car on the M6 blocked one of the three lanes in the roadworks which caused this tailback

London both ways

I like this one for how London N & E is one way and W and S are another. And we are 100 odd miles from the M25 - saves sitting on the 25 for ages.

WestBound M42 - Coppermine - 21176.jpg
WestBound M42

Winter 1987. WestBound M42. At this time, the M5 had been widened from Jct 4A to 5 [that project included the southern arms of 4A]. The second widening project was underway between junction 5 to 6. The somewhat 'amusing' northern Jct 4A arms [necessitated by the abandonment of the M42 Northern Link] were included as part of the junction 4 to 4A widening, which started in 1988. Hence, in this photograph [if you are still with me] :- we have the blanked left side to the gantry. .....We didnt get fancy paint jobs on our vehicles in them days !!

North east view from Shadowbrook Lane overbridge showing the 1/2 mile ADS for Junction 6 on the M42 and part of an overhead gantry for the ATM equipment - this particular one has the large warning board display on the very top and the individual lane boards over each lane all on the other side. 8 July 2008

M42 Variable Speed Limit - Coppermine - 4287.jpg
M42 Variable Speed Limit

Looking north about 1 mile south of J6. A 60mph limit is showing even though the traffic isn't serious enough to warrant such a limit. I get the impression the limits are set too cautiously resulting in 60mph showing too often.

Queue on M42 approaching J3a - Coppermine - 13534.jpg
Queue on M42 approaching J3a

Typical Friday afternoon madness as traffic using the M42 holds up those wanting to use the M40. Some of those in lane 3 will cut in right at the end which causes queuing like this.

Looking south from the same vantage point. A 60mph limit is showing in this direction as well. The VMS says Gritting in Progress.
