    The traffic on Ewell Road has been dreadful because of this.

    Today I just drove through the cones because, despite closing the road, they have decided not to do any work. I get really fed up with road works that have no one doing anything.

      Actually, Kevin, the word on the Rialto is this. The reason you may not have seen anyone working is that the works were taking place on the track above the roadway. The roadway is closed to prevent injuries to persons or vehicles from tools, bits of ballast, even possibly a worker falling through. Anyone doing what you seem to have done would be taking an awful risk. We value you too much to want to have you repeat the experiment. AND NO-ONE ELSE SHOULD TRY IT EITHER!

    Thanks for this Kevin. I’ll pass it on to Highways and post their reply. Could any other reader who had the same experience please let us know?
