Re the train issue - a mate of mine was meant to travel from Paddington last night but along with thousands of others got caught up in the trouble. Complete chaos ensued and GWR were woefully short with any form of communication. He acknowledged that provison of hotel rooms for thousand was not practical but he wasn’t appreciative of the complete lack of any form of comment from GWR staff. Well and truly caught with their pants down.

Hope that everyone is ok, I travel that corridor quite often, and the standard of driving is horrendous, the need to get there "quick" has a lot to do with it.

I've often found leaving earlier gives you more time, it's an odd approach but works well for me.

Traffic that merges onto motorways that have only 2 lanes is a recipe for disaster.
They bang on about east Wales relief roads but really the whole network from West Wales up is becoming a very dangerous stretch and allied with ridiculous speeding and undertaking maybe it's no wonder there's so much accidents and fatalities.

Western Ave ? stretch at Cardiff and the slip on at the top of the incline between Tredegar House and the tunnels are absolutely dangerous, the number of near misses Ive seen on them is unbelievable.

My wife did the daily Llanelli - Cardiff - Llanelli commute for 17 years and the £80 per week fuel costs, 25k per year mileage and new tyres every 9 months all became less significant when she became forced to leave the house at 06:45 for an 08:45 start time. Chuck in a few accidents that she was involved in and enough became enough; sufficient justification to leave her job without having another one to go to.

This is why the trains need to be up to a higher standard. You can't rely on the roads anymore to be on time.

Absolutely. From a timing point of view she could have made the train option work at a push however peak time capacity was a major problem.

The other initiative I would like to see more of is incentive schemes for car pooling; incentives sufficiently high enough to make commuters go and look seriously at following the scheme.

I did a Neath to Barry commute for 19 years, starting work at 6 am or 6pm, roads were basically fairly clear then, but rush hour is horrible.Rail not an option at these times either

The amount of people in the outside lane who are using their phones is scary. Both chatting and texting. I've brought this point up before. There needs to be a huge deterrent for this. Immediate loss of licence for a year, and a fixed penalty £1000 fine should do the trick. Repeat offenders get permanent bans for life and £10,000 fines.
