On my drive in from God’s Country (Queanbeyan) this morning, I noticed that something I suspected had indeed come to pass: there was very little traffic on the Monaro Highway. At 8.45am.
Several weeks ago it could take a good 15 minutes to get from Hume through to the airport, but for the last week or so the traffic has been noticeably lighter. This morning it was a comfortable 100km/k all the way through to Fyshwick, then about 2 minutes of queueing for the bridge, then an easy 80km/h run down past the turf fields.
Anyone know what’s happened?
