After a “landslip” shut down a section of road, requiring a 14 mile diversion, English businessman Mike Watts took out a £300,000 loan on his home to build a private toll road on a nearby farmer’s land, allowing people to get from Kelston to Bath in a reasonable amount of time. The Kelston Toll Road was not approved by the local council (gasp!), but it’s perfectly legal.

And a whole lot more responsive to the needs of the people than those elected bureaucrats.
