Kings Drive is probably the best example in Liverpool.
Start of Kings Drive is a dual carriageway until a different council got in and decided that just past (what is now Sainsburys), that we didn't need a dual carriageway so we'll keep it to single lane.
A massive section of grass appears here but then another council got in and decided that near the bottom of Kings Drive, they'd have a dual carriageway again.
And then lastly, another council got in and decided that the roundabout at the bottom of Kings Drive wasn't going to happen, nor was the cut through the loop line which should have joined the other side of Kings Drive up (single lane - massive grassy area).
The biggest fun and games is where Hunts Cross Avenue stops at one side, didn't link to the supposed roundabout, and the other section of Hunts Cross Avenue is as wide as a motorway yet is classed as a 'side' road!
