Britain is not like modern countries and doesn’t have a decent road network. There’s only a few motorways and they’re usually ram-packed.
Incidents occurring on the handful of little motorways can cause extensive delays. It is with great relief that a table of closure times has been published so the police know how long to close a motorway for.
I’ve managed to get a copy of this table. I might have got it from the Department for Transport or my head:
Recommended Closure Times for Motorway Incidents:
|Incident||Recommended Closure Time|
|Squashed Hegehog||1 Hour|
|Drone Sighting||5 Hours|
|Leaves on Line||6 Hours|
|Illegal Aliens on Lorry||8 Hours|
