Your vote for the most dug up road in GB - volvoman
I don't drive much these days but in my limited geographical range there is one road I'd nominate as one of the most frequently dug up roads in the country. It is a section of the A232 from Orpington to Locks Bottom which is the main route through to the A21 and Croydon. The short section of road involved can't be more than 200m long but seems to be dug up every few weeks for one reason or another causing massive local congestion. Those doing the work are either hardly ever present or are a 'one man and his dog' type outfit and the fact that there are almost no viable alternatives only makes matters worse.

There is obviously little planning or co-ordination of these works and I can't help thinking that this example is just the tip of a very big iceberg.

So fellow BackRoomers, get if off you chest, what's your vote for the most dug up road in the UK?

2 contenders:

Wilsden Main Street, Bradford - over at least the last five years it has always had temporary traffic lights for one trench or another!

A48 between the M50 and M4. I've been using this road for the last 10 years 5-6 times per year on relative visits. In all that time I can never remember a time when it wasn't being resurfaced. Tarmac to concrete, concrete to tarmac, tarmac to a 'brushed' grit type surface. Does anyone know if this stretch of road is used to experiment with road finishes because the amount of traffic doesn't justify the amount of resurfacing going on!

Southampton Row London WC1/2. Resurfacing, followed by bus lane creation, now being trenched for drains or something.

V, agree entirely that that road is a joke around here. However, have you tried going down the (sorry don't know the A number) road from Orpington to the industrial estates lately? If you haven't, don't!

Great Portland Street, London W1. I used to work there an the noise from pneumatic drills every day used to drive me demented.

Perhaps not the most dug up, but possibly the most annoying type of road works.

Road at the end of my street was resurfaced less than a month ago (with the "quiet" surface) and along come Transco and dig the deepest hole you've ever seen.

Quite tempted to write to the council to make sure that Transco are picking up the bill for this as well as any future work that needs doing (as no doubt where they resurface will be a point of weakness).
