Philosophical Roadworks

Philosophical Roadworks

When Highways England took over from the Highways Agency, they immediately trialled what they called "a new approach to roadworks". This basically involved spending time and money putting a lot of patronising messages everywhere.

I'd never seen one before, so it came as a bit of a surprise when I was on the A40, in a stationary queue caused by new road signs being erected, and I found that it suddenly started speaking to me.

Without a doubt, these are Britain's most philosophical roadworks.

Tedious about the author bit

I love music, media, news, travelling, old TV shows, heavy machinery, lists. Have a fear of boats. Humour is weak at best.

I presented radio, I write, I'll be whoever you want to be. I'm not wearing that.


Legally bland

Any similarities with real-life events or wealthy international firms is probably coincidental. No products endorsed. I'm powered by Monster Munch.
