    Just checked - it's an all day closure.

    The recommended diversion route is 17 miles long <laugh>

    That diversion looks a bit ott to me, there must be a quicker route, especially during lockdown!

    There is, but I think they want people to avoid going through the City, and the fact that Hessle Road and Anlaby Road are partly shut atm doesn't help.

    But the idea that anyone will do the full 17 mile diversion is laughable - I bloody wouldn't.

    There've been roadworks between the KC and Anlaby for months

    What I'd do, right, and this is a bloody brilliant idea so bear with me, what I'd do is I'd make roads and I'd make them out of decent materials, right, so they didn't need working on every few months, yeah, right, do you get what I mean? Like, not just roads, but actual good roads?

    Not too many civil/highway engineers on this forum it seems.
    Raise municipal taxes. Good idea. Hike taxes on fuel. Good idea.
    Develop better civil engineering materials. It'll never happen.

    Are you campaigning for higher taxes on fuel in Canada where it is a lot cheaper than here?

    About 60% of the cost of fuel here is duty and tax, it's been taxed as far as they can, it's already double what you pay in Canada.

    Nope. I'm campaigning to get more Romans to emigrate to Canada.
    Problem is, Canada has far greater swings in weather conditions, so they would not succeed.

    Seems you took the wrong end of the stick too. See # 17.

    It certainly takes us a lot longer to build bridges. And they won't last as long.
