roads..

Well, the interview went OK. I certainly didn't crash and burn, and I think I answered all the questions until they asked (begged?) me to stop! I won't find out for a couple of weeks, though, since one of the candidates is on holiday. So, I'll just continue doing the job I'm doing until I'm told either to continue or desist.

To lighten the mood, here is a small selection of British road systems with which one can terrify overseas visitors. If you have any further suggestions, please drop me an email or comment!

road systems we know and love

The Magic Roundabout - Swindon's original 'magic roundabout', built in 1972 to confuse residents and visitors alike. (Wikipedia page)

The Plough Roundabout - Hemel Hempstead's beautiful gyratory of doom, built in 1973. The great thing is you can go both ways round the lush green island in the middle. (Wikipedia page)

The Gravelly Hill Interchange - Junction 6 of the M6. It's my idea of a fun road. That said, I think I went on it last week on the way home from Birmingham, and, although beautiful, it wasn't at all frightening the way I did it. (Wikipedia page)
