I currently live in Oswestry Shropshire. I work however in Chester, it's a good 35/40 miles to work each day. Takes me an hour max each way. Depending on the traffic. I had always driven to work, mainly as i like the comfort of my own car and the radio. It's relaxing to have that alone time before i hit the office. But a few months ago, they decided it would be a good idea to reduce the A483 to a single line carriageway while they worked on some slip roads, it was murder. Would take me 1-2 hours to get home sometimes, long ques of traffic. I expected to be frustrated with it, but i never expected the physical affects of it. I would feel incredibley ill when i went to go into my car to goto work, this sickness. It's quite amazing. So i decided to look at the public transport options. Bus wasn't an option since i lived in a rural area so it would take 1-2 hours to get to chester anyway. So i was left with the train. To my suprise it was £25 for a week ticket to chester. Since i drive a VW Passat 03 1.9 TDi and the mpg is around 48-53 depending on how i drive it, i was shocked. It was roughly the same ammount i spend in diesel to get to work, in addition i'd have the added hassle of getting to the station.. Then to work from the station. Then the worry of delays... Honestly, i was shocked. I thought it would be around £10/15... How can they charge so much for a normally poor service, not to mention the fact it is public transport afterall. Anyone else find this with there daily commute?
