Eastern Road Doonside roadworks - Major Delays

Kudos to the bozo who decided that morning peak hour on 31st January, the morning most kids are returning to school, is a great time to close an east-bound lane on Eastern Road. Results included bumper-to-bumper traffic back to the M7, and a 15-20 minute crawl to the Knox road intersection. Results for us personally also included our teenage daughter, struggling with anxiety, being on the verge of a panic attack as she faced being late for her first day in Year 10, with all the attendant confusion and embarrassment that will involve. Multiply our circumstances by the number of personal stories involved in the hundreds of vehicles caught up in this farce. Ok, bad things happen, but this could have been avoided simply by postponing the start of work for 50-60 mins. This was bloody-minded stupidity.
