Well, seems they're finally getting around to fixing a choice section of local roads round here.
St. Peter's Bridge, in Burton suffered tailbacks whilst they were sorting the Stapenhill end of things. At least the roundabout at that end of the bridge is nice and smooth now.

Which reminds me, although the MX-5 is spot on after its realignment, the Mazda3 is suffering from understeer lately, quite catastrophic in places.

Time to give the tyres a real close look over, check the pressures are at 32PSI all over and consider a trip down to get it "WIMed". There are nearer places, granted, but that's just my personal preference.

Our main road :roll:
Is akin to a farm track in a third world country, I kid ye not!
I took a run into town this morning, honestly and I am not over-egging this but it's as rough as a badgers rear end.
Good to see they're keeping the garages, tyre manufacturers, alignment specialists and suspension peeps in business.

It's not so good playing dodge the pothole when trying to give a smooth ride to those less fortunate and their carer in the rear of my work's motor

Doesn't rattle your bones so bad in the Mazda3 but with it's "Sport" suspension, in other words "hard" suspension.
Jumping into the 5, then it's a completely different story. :eek:
