Just wondering how are the roads around your area at the moment? I got super annoyed as just driven on newly surfaced A14 around Cambridge, they were making it wider with a lot of new bridges, etc for the past 4 years or so, and have to say the final surface, closest to Cambridge, feels like the roll was done by a square shaped roller! I'm not saying they are rough, just seem to be way more uneven than some of the older roads like M11, etc.
I don't know why is this happening and how they get accepted like that? Is it due to lower cost so spec is worse and allows for these imperfections? Any ideas?
Don't want to talk much about city roads, they get as bad as it gets here, some of the pothole patches are being patched every 3-4 months, some don't get patched at all, roads are badly cracked, kerbs often sank. I'd say 75% of all Cambridge roads are 75% used up completely. In 5 or 10 years they will all require complete rebuild or will be undrivable in a Jag. Basically roads here at the moment are as bad as they were in Poland around 1995, the quality of the road works seems very similar to that period too...
