Its supposed to be the start of the school holiday season, so that the roads clear for a few weeks creating easier journeys to work.
Somehow this isn't fully working this year.
Firstly, I'm guessing more people are staying in the UK. What's that horrible word? "Staycationing" Yuk.
Secondly, there's a competition amongst the various road construction companies to see how few miles of the motorway system can be left unconed.
My estimate is that there is still a tiny stretch of M25 in Hertfordshire without cones, and they've missed a small piece of M3, but kept the speed limits on it in any case. Apart from that, it looks like pretty comprehensive coverage, at least in the areas that I drive.
