UK motorists are being plagued by thousands of miles of unfinished maintenance work according to a survey of county councils by a leading breakdown service.

More details have been revealed in a report by Yahoo! News:

“One authority – Suffolk County Council – had 1,906 road maintenance projects under way.

In addition, Leicestershire County Council had 1,250 schemes on the go, while Derby City Council had 930.

A total of 91 councils provided information about the number of roadworks in their area, with the unfinished projects in these areas totalling 10,499, or an average of 115 per council.

A total of 62 councils gave information about the length in miles of their outstanding works, with the average being 11 miles.”

With an estimated 2387 miles of uncompleted road works across the country perhaps allowing more time for your journey would help make a stress free drive.
