Highways Agency warns of clear stretch on M3
The Highways Agency today issued an urgent warning to motorists about possible free-flowing traffic on the M3 between Junctions 11 and 12. Drivers have been advised to consider taking alternative routes in order to encounter delays, or to postpone non-essential journeys to avoid disappointment.
‘We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,’ said an embarassed spokesman today. ‘We thought we had the entire motorway covered with cones and speed restrictions, but I’m afraid this two-mile stretch slipped through the net.’ The blunder comes at a particularly bad time for the Highways Agency after all four lanes of the M25 remained open for the entirety of the recent bank holiday weekend.
