Gee, I dunno. Of the fifty interchanges/intersections listed at http://www.cbrd.co.uk/badjunctions/ , three involve the M60, including the infamous M60/M62/M66 interchange, which surely belongs on any list of worst interchanges on the planet.

I like the M60 and A560 interchange, that is . And I have drawings with motorway interchanges like the M60/M62/M66 somewhere. I would add a flyover for outer M60...

The lorry is beautiful indeed as well as picture is.

By the way, going around Hampshire yesterday-using mainly M3 and M27-I noticed hard to describe number of Spain registered cars. Many of them RHD. Those cars are obviously driven by Britons living in Spain and coming back home for Christmas, so it's nothing unusual, however I have never realized it may be such a huge number of them at once.

Is that true? If yes is there any schedule or deadlines when it suppose to be done? Or they just replace ones in places where there are some other works done, like widening etc.

I also read something about those barriers being replaced, mainly for concrete ones.

Today I have seen the opposite in Switzerland, a LHD car with british plates.
