Funding finally in place for £5.5bn M25 mega-deal


The M25 between J5-7 is to be hard shoulder running. There was a scheme to widen to four lanes but the costs per kilometer proved to be nearly double those of the two stretches north of London, even though the traffic volumes are very similar. This extra cost is because of the ground conditions (Gault Clay) and because in many locations the flat cut slopes have been returned to agriculture and the fences are adjacent to the hard shoulder. Accepting this short sighted decision for hard shoulder running,when will the concrete barrier/lighting be built (and improved noise fencing)? We local residents have been campaigning for years but the work just slips back and back. John M Roe MICE
