Default Catering for caravans

here is a copy of an article in the "New Civil Engineer" of 30 September
2004:-


Starting in January next year a series of widening schemes will get under
way on the
M4 and M5 around Bristol and the Agency does not want Avonmouth Bridge works
compounding the inevitable delays.
The schemes will see climbing lanes added in four locations:
: M4 eastbound on the approach to Junction 18
M5 northbound at Hailen Hill on the approach to Junction 17, Cribbs
Causeway
..a M5 northbound at Tickenham Hill between Junctions 20 and 19
M5 southbound at Naish Hill! between Junctions 19 and 20.
All are designed largely to tackle the cursed caravan.
These stretches of motorway are busy routes and slow moving traffic causes
major
delays, especially during holiday periods.
All four schemes will be built by ECI contractor Birse CSvils. FaberMaunsell
is lead designer.
To avoid the need for extra land take and the associated public inquiries
the climbing lanes will be built using a variety of earth retention
techniques.

What would really help is dual carriageway (better still motorway) all the
way to Penzance, with a spur leading to the Eden Project's private junction.

way to Penzance, with a spur leading to the Eden Project's private

junction

Dual carriageway on Bodmin moor where there is the 1 1/2 mile of single
carriageway east of Bodmin and also Goss Moor west of Bodmin.

All that is required

Looe ect A38
St Austell A38

Currently DC runs out just after Launceston
East 1.5 will help Bodmin, Eden, north St Austell

Not much difference for Padstow (currently Lauceston then A39)

Goss Moor will greatly aid Newquay, Falmouth & Lizard pennisula

I haven't done A30 from A39 Falmouth to Redruth but nice DC along to St Erth

Good Idea

Bring more money to an impoverished COUNTRY our friendly Americans could do London
, Bath , Lands End and return in a day not that they dont do it now.

Get over the *Woolly Hat Brigade* and there would be a dual carriageway over Goss
Moor tomorrow , but as it an area of SSI there's a lot of opposition .

Before moving to Leeds I lived in Falmouth for three years. Caravans are not
the problem on the stretch of road over Goss moor, infact cars without
anything on seem to nicely slow down traffic as do large trucks. The whole
Cornish road system is out dated and in need of severe work. Cornwalls
economy is virtually dependant on tourism and they are excluding a lot of
people who would love to go but dont want to park on the A34!!

I nowmake the journey down to see my parents every few months, the last
journey took us 7 and a half hours... where could i have flown in that time
I wonder?
