Spot on, the M27 should have run from Dover to Exeter, but the NIMBY effect, compounded by nu-labia's lip service to the South whilst investing heavily in the midlands and North, means it'll never be done now. Even the 'improvements' to the A31/A35 in Dorset just lead to further bottle necks, just before Dorchester, by Wimborne, Chichester and Arundel to the East on the A27 are the same.
