So there was a bit of discussion on Smart Motorways last night, and I'd thought I'd bring this to the forum! So how do you feel about Smart Motorways? Do you find them necessary, or are they just a nuisance?

Traffic in some areas of the UK are just becoming so congested that we need more solutions. Relief roads do work but tend to go through countrysides and effect locals the worst. These are also expensive. Smartmotorways introduce a solution that doesn't involve building new roads but by doing work on existing roads helps to relief the traffic.

Smart motorways are excellent and bring British roads in-line with a modern standard imo.

1) Average / Variable speed limit - Great addition, prevents speeding and hence stops accidents.
2) Hard Shoulder usage - Good idea and has played out well throughout the past 5 years. These motorways are manned normally through cameras and therefore they can close it off should need be.
3) 'Red X' above closed lanes - Good idea, prevents people speeding into accidents and potentially causing a larger one.
