Every little boy's dream...
Before setting off for London on Friday, time to perform the start of work on the Eastern Transport Corridor for the press.
Together with images of people holding huge cheques and sporting cheesy grins, pictures of councillors in diggers at the start of building projects are the cliched staples of the local press.
Still, I have to confess I felt a real buzz when I got behind the wheel of this monster. Give me a chequed shirt and a utility belt and I am Bob the Builder.
Seriously though, the road should be completed in the spring of 2008.
