The hard shoulders on motorways.

We write with some concern of the idea of allowing the hard shoulders on motoways open to traffic. We find it hard to understand why Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly is so excited about extending this idea to other motorways. The concept now is that the hard shoulder is there for emergencies and is often used by emergency vehicles. The opening of the hard shoulder as an experiment on the M42 is greeted with comments on pollution easing and more traffic flow.

We are rather alarmed that now this formula will be extended to other motorways. This is a bad idea and we hope wiser heads will intervene and prevent such a development.
