In October 2015 the “Smart Motorway” system between junction 10 and 13 should have been completed. Well into January 2016 we still don’t have any movement and, despite me driving on it at all hours of the day, I’ve never seen anybody actually working on it. This must be the slowest project in history. Bring back the Victorians, they would’ve had it done in a couple of months.
Meanwhile, there’s calls to nationalise the M6 Toll, which is continuing to be royally rubbish after posting losses of £28.6 million.
