Indeed.

But I'll sit in traffic for the JLT roundabout for 10 mins, then another 45 on Sheikh's Helmet until I'm home and in bed.

Ouch. You're in JLT?

If you're in clusters O-Z, prepare to lose 2-3 hours a week sitting in that horrendous ****ing traffic jam.

That said, they're building the flyover on the exit from D to O so maybe they'll get rid of that roundabout soon and force the ****wits that use it as a u-turn to exit on 5.5 or through the Meadows like they're meant to.

Yeah, Tiffany Tower, Cluster W.

It's just ****ing idiots that cause hassle at the roundabout. Non stop lane changing and dicking about.

Also, I fail to understand why there is no option for people coming from the AD end of JLT by SZR to just go straight on instead of having to go up to the roundabout and doing a protracted U turn to carry on their journey.

Morons.

Nah, all of the problems are caused by the fact there is too much traffic for a roundabout to be used. Once A-D are on the roundabout, they keep pushing on, so that the traffic from O-Z that would normally force them to yield can't get on; in other words, the ones u-turn have almost permanent priority, which is wrong.

You only have to look at how aggressively people wanting to turn left at the roundabout from O-Z need to push their way onto it to get around to see there is a major problem and it's caused by A-D.

If you removed the traffic from A-F from that roundabout, the traffic would flow perfectly; even at rush hour.

And there used to be one at the bottom, but the RTA removed it as they are trying to stop people from using SZR and push them off onto the parallel road at the back.

It should be fine in about two months. Once they've built the fly over from D-O, they will be removing the roundabout. The only reason it is there is in case someone coming from A-D needs to go to O-Z. Once they flyover is there, there will be no reason to allow people to do a u-turn there.

I don't look great and right now I definitely don't smell great.

I smashed down a Wendy's for lunch though. First one ever and it was really decent. Gourmet.

Wendy's, They were amazing. Had one in Leeds, all freshly made and a top burger. Smell is an issue, I had a local give me a bottle of 'Local' aftershave (Some Givenchy Shit I have never heard of) whilst hungover. 2 squirts of that destroys anyones nostrils and no one is any the wiser what nasty smells its masking
