Interesting to see Transport minister Lord Adonis taking a tour of some UK motorways in the same way he did a week on the trains earlier this year. At the very least, here is a secretary of state willing to get out and try the transport network ­ it seems as if Adonis has a genuine interest in sorting some of the problems. But I'm less impressed by his diary of the tour on the DfT's website. He seems more concerned with taking pops at the likes of Welcome Break and other services operators, while glossing over problems such as the congestion caused by the tolls on the Dartford Crossing.
