If you have to build a motorway where there is a busy road then there are bound to be delays. Especially as the other road is a toll B road and there are only two roads to better health Paying or NHS which is paying from your wage packet using NI. Bit like road taxes and petrol.
The NHS is a dual carriage way which is clogged up Some things move faster than others, bicycles, motorbikes but Vans, lorries and cars are all snarled up and take an age to move, and they take up more petrol.
This all costs money
Whilst we accept that things are not great we are proposing a ten lane highway but in the mean time we will build an A road which is a toll road at the side whilst we plan the motorway.
Anyone who wants to pay to use that road to get to their health back to normal is welcome to use it.
Pay the toll
In the mean time we will start building the five lanes on each side so that all the traffic can move more efficiently.
But its not going to happen over night and it will save petrol in the future, you might save enough even to use the toll road with no problems and then we will upgrade the toll road to a dual carriage way purely for cars and motorbikes.
This is all going to take time planning and effort but would you rather that the old carriage way remains and no work is done but more petrol is made available?
Think about this clearly
You can throw money at the problem and the cars will still reach their destination but ever so slowly or you can take some decisive action and finally get the system working so well that you will wonder why you ever put up with the old dual carriageway.
A modern metaphor for our times.
