I have never been in one of their shops and as my nearest is "up north" i.e. I have to head north and suffer dreadful traffic jams to get into the main shopping area of my home town, I head west of south and shop at nearby far smaller towns.
Down in Ipswich some bright spark decided it was too difficult to get into and out of Commercial Road so the have widened the road with a slip road going into Commercial Road and traffic lights to get the traffic in and out. So now the traffic on the one of only two roads that connect the north and south of the town (and the other road is on the far west of the town) has even more stop starts.
The joke is the traffic never had any trouble getting in and out of Commercial Road, other road users always let them in or out. And there is not a lot of traffic into or out of Commercial Road either. So now I have to put up with pedestrian crossings (necessary) and 5 sets of traffic lights to to the 1.5 miles to get to the car park so I can shop in town.
And I can get filled rolls in my local baker, real bread and yummy cakes. Even if they open a Subway near me I still cannot see me using it. But for those of you who do, enjoy.
