The roadworks along the B5129 which are currently located at the Queensferry end of Chester Road East, are about to enter their 23rd week, some 7 weeks behind the scheduled finish date. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Many of us who face the abject misery of those daily lengthy queues may well be encouraged to know there is perhaps an alternative. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A jet bike! ok so not the most practical of transport modes, but with such slow progress it sure beats sitting in those queues.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The bike was invented by Lincolnshire plumber Colin Furze, he blogs about his garage inventions here – its well worth a look.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
