Users of Tipner Range and fishermen will be so grateful

Our roads are the worst in Europe, says Rick

RICK JACKSON: Potholed roads are like a patchwork made by a five-year-old

Have your say

The road to nowhere is nearly finished.

For thousands of commuters, using the M275 has been heavy going for the past six months. The new junction for Tipner nears completion in preparation for the regeneration of the area.

Housing, shopping and leisure facilities are all in the pipeline, providing jobs, services and homes with fantastic outlooks across the harbour.

The new residents are in for a treat. Although that’s all a way off; Tipner still mostly consists of wasteland and concrete detritus.

But eventually this expensive, yet beautifully-sculptured carriageway will really ease the gruelling rush-hour burden for users of Tipner Ranges and a handful of fishermen.
