    Default Traffic Jams!

    Stuck in bloomin traffic queue tonight

    For the guys that know it, A610 Ripley to M1 J26.
    On way home tonight, just past the 'Ikea' exit when I noticed a queue of traffic in the distance.
    It took me an hour to get from Ikea to M1 roundabout
    No accident but just as bad going into Nottingham

    I sat in the traffic & was waiting to get a ditchp early warning
    It would have been too late then

    The 'normal' hour journey home took 2 hours

    Start missing that mate!!! There's a long traffic jam!!! I was stuck seeing our mate Steve at Marehay!

    The cause is the big island after J26 where people go left to Watnall- some clowns are digging up the motorway bridge causing traffic to q back to 26!!!

    Might be better starting to look down through A38 or thru Heanor down to ilkeston!!! A38 best??

    Don't envy you at all mate!! You'll be ok though- they're finished in Oct 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not surprised you spent many hours in there!!! It takes 3 hours to get lunch when it's empty!!

    Try Devonshire Arms nr Ambergate (left from your end at The Excavator) and have Sunday Carvery- Awesome but don't accept any plastic!
