Road works


There were lots of road works on the run down to Kaunas in Lithuania. The signage is quite misleading in a number of ways.

Firstly, the road doesn’t work. It’s broken and being repaired, so “road works” should maybe have no space in it?

Secondly, I didn’t actually see anyone doing any work. Much like the miles of coned off lanes in the UK with nothing going on.

Finally, non of the road ‘workers’ i saw looked anything remotely like the woman holding the sign.

I waited at the first set of lights for 10 minutes, after which I could see a line of cars coming the other way. My light went green before they arrived, then turned to red before they passed. The lights aren’t synchronised!

At every other set of roadworks there was a traffic jam, as two cars had met head on in a one car wide stretch. No accidents, but animated drivers all claiming the other had run a red light. Luckily my motorcycle is narrow and I could leave them to it!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
