Drove "oop North" to school reunion.
(I haven't been on the motorways for years)
90% of the hard shoulders have disappeared. Converted to an extra lane.
Replaced by "Refuges" about a mile apart.
I wonder how many people make it to one of them if they break down?.
Must be chaos if one doesn't.
Very heavy traffic both ways. Four lane highways make being in the wrong lane much more dodgy.
I'm sure the lanes are narrower too.
