Reading the article on proposed 'demand management' and proposed high occupancy lanes (NCE last week), I can only assume the Highways Agency has taken leave of its senses.
Adding unnecessary and unproven social engineering is not the answer to congestion.
Widening heavily congested motorways may give the impression that something is being done, but it is hardly cost effective, as poor lane discipline dictates the flow.
Better design of junctions, and providing properly upgraded alternative routes have to be given more priority.
Deliberately designing in congestion would seem to me to be irresponsible.
