On behalf of most of the general public I am totally fed up with endless roadworks and road closures. I appreciate (some) have to be done but can’t they stagger them out a bit?

Wherever you go there seems to be an unexpected road closed or endless barriers for a one metre stretch of road to be erm ‘repaired’ with traffic down to one lane. It’s an absolute joke.

Stepshort in Belton is closed again, god knows what they are doing now, had to turn around for about the 50th time in six months this week and go the long way round, also around the hospital more barriers and the road down to one lane. Bradwell is an absolute stalemate... the list goes on and on and on and on... and travel around this area for work at all times of the day. Just totally fed up with it all now.
