    This is partly a result of privatising the railways IMO. The private companies shut or cut back frequency on many routes in the midlands so it's all but impossible to commute by train from outlying areas.

    It was exactly this situation (commuting in the midlands) that finally prompted me to learn to drive. I couldn't have taken the job otherwise.

    We need an integrated & well thought out transport policy, not just more spending on roads. Instead we get what I suspect is a purely ideological decision

    The Government has committed to transforming the agency into a publicly owned corporation by next year.
    how is that going to help? They are going to need a new agency to oversee the public corporation anyway, so either it's just going to cost more overall or they plan on giving the corporation less money to spend on actually making it work. Stupid ****ers.

    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    this is such a non story

    The maximum speed of a motorway is 70mph

    Nowhere has anyone said that this will be the expected speed you can travel on a motorway all the time....

    On the way in this morning I probably touched 90 on the M56....

    But had left it 30 minutes later I would have done well to touch 40

    A bit like KentPhilip. He only touched 55 and considered himself to have done well.

    M60 Anti clockwise, M66 and M65: average speed of 70mph often hitting 90mph. This was at the peak of rush hour. Beat that.
