That goes into the road a bit... shouldn't there be a keep right sign?

Roadworks on the A3 in Germany just south of Cologne. Yellow markings are used to indicate 'temporary' (these are red in other countries, such as Austria).

Driving on the railway line (C) John Allan
A section of the railway on the south shore of Loch Carron put to use as a temporary way for road vehicles during the long closure of the A890. The road was blocked by a landslide in December 2011 resulting in a diversion of some 140 miles.

A relief ferry <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2812302'>NG8635 : Ferry, Strome Ferry</a> was used to relieve the situation for a while until the railway was prepared to take traffic for short periods during the day.
Some of the work to try to stabilise the cliffs can be seen on the left of the picture.

The road is expected to reopen towards the end of April 2012.

Following the rapid replacement of the carriageway following the flash-flood in Coverack in July 2017, there remained remedial works requiring these temporary traffic lights.

Quite a bit of road work starting on the M6 between Stafford and Stoke now, especially on the central reservation. No doubt its probably part of the planned up and coming Smart Motorway scheme. Must of only started work here very recently.

IMG 4604.JPG
Wolverhampton A449/A460 junction, back when they were doing the improvements in 2018. This is where new street light columns with Philips Digistreet lanterns replaced old 1960s columns with Simplex Jupiter lanterns.

Urbis ZX3s beginning to be removed on the M5 just coming off the M6.

Wolverhampton tram extension works. The new extension is almost complete and ready but won't open probably until the train station is redeveloped. All Ive noticed so far is that they've started installing new lighting columns.

Along Railway Drive. Philips MA30 lantern outside Wolverhampton train station. Both this lantern and the column won't be lasting for much longer, as the station is being redeveloped.
Birmingham A38 Road Improvements 2019.jpg
This section of road is closed and being worked on now, probably until the construction project is completed some time next year. On the other side of the bridge the roadway has been completely removed and is just dirt. Sure it was still open to traffic last time I was here a few months back. As for the street lighting, they're LEDs, Urbis Teceo lanterns. These columns and the lanterns were installed a couple years ago.

Meriden Street, Digbeth, Birmingham. Heading away from Curzon Street. Eventually this whole area is to be redeveloped from what Ive seen. I think theres plans for a metro/tram line down this road too.

The tram extension works in Blackpool, where progress has stopped for now. This Wilko supermarket building is still yet to be demolished to make way for the rest of the new planned tram line.
