45 hour delay! I hope this is an exaggeration!!

Saw this article in the local news about a huge delay on the M25 on August 19th. I hope the estimate of a 45 hour delay is an exaggeration or miscalculation!

It'll be on the road 45 hours, but it's travelling between 7pm and 3am with stops during the day. So unless there's a mechanical failure it's probably going be out of the way and make very little difference.

This sort of thing just goes towards reminding me why we moved back to Scotland all those years ago. Mind you, Edinburgh can get pretty clogged up from time to time, mostly road works or some clever person deciding to introduce a new one way system!

My experience of that section of the M25 is that there is a 45 hour delay at any time of the day or night, I always seem to find stationary traffic round that area

Yes. It's awful. Best take a flask and sandwiches!

When I picked up my evo I ended up doing 10mph on that very stretch on my way from byfleet back up towards Heathrow
