After 50 years, the M10 will stop being a motorway.

Which means that the road number will now be freed up, and eventually may be assigned to a totally different road (as per the A14, which used to terminate 400 metres behind me, and which is now 20 minutes drive away).

The rationale is to permit non-motorway traffic to be able to travel between St Albs and Hemel. But the M10 currently merges directly into the M1, so they're going to have to do something at that end.

(Given the recent roadworks in the area, I suspect they're going to run some separated lanes parallel to the M1 for a mile or two, until it reaches the next junction.)

Lost a motorway? Damned careless, if you ask me.

Just goes to show, nothing is safe from identity theft these days.

I used to drive it to get to work when I lived in St Albans. Lovely piece of road.
