Please, please can we kill this half-baked myth that better roads increase traffic, no one buys a new vehicle because a new road has been built or an old one improved. This is the sort of daft excuse eagerly sought by the government to restrict spending on the road system, hence the 70 year wait for Baldock bypass. Whether or not B Woods likes to admit it, road transport has been, and continues to be, of enormous benefit to the economy and population of the UK: it is the country's lifeblood and roads are the blood vessels.
