Do copious amounts of signs and cones which have been left outside of work hours “cry wolf” and reduce the effect of getting motorists to actually slow down for road workers?

In the UK, the Government is considering fining companies who leave roadworks in place with no one around.

It is also considering forcing the companies to work seven days a week to get the work done as quickly as possible.

This issue has been getting on Paul Henry’s nerves, so to get to the bottom of it, he was joined by NZTA’s regional state highways performance manager Mark Owen.
