The traffic around Colchester during rush hour is getting ridiculous. Take this morning, for example.
Time it would take to drive to work without any traffic: 25 minutes
Time it took this morning: 1 hour (I set off at 7:45 and got in at 8:45).
I just find it really frustrating sitting in traffic, not doing anything – at least when you’re waiting for a train you can sit and read. And, of course, with all the new flats and houses they’re building in Colchester the situation can only get worse!
Ah, it’s being so cheerful that keeps you going…
I do believe that there are a couple of things they could do to improve the traffic situation a bit, mainly strategic placement of traffic lights. If they put some lights on a couple of roundabouts, I reckon it would help with traffic flow going from town out towards the A12 in the London direction. Or at least make it a bit fairer.
In the meantime, I think I’m going to get my bike license…
