Wakefield to Brigg in less than 7 Minutes.
Recently I had to drive from Wakefield to Brigg due to work and I thought it might be a bit of fun to film it and speed up the results to reduce a 1 hour 10 minute journey in a truck down to just 6 minutes 40 seconds. I then over laid the film with waltz of the flowers by Tchaikovsky.
There wasn't much notable in the way of scenery as the camera was forward facing, so here's a few notable points in time along the film,
Trinity Walk Shopping Centre, Wakefield 0.03
M62 Motorway 0.59
Ferrybridge Power Station 1.35
M18 Motorway 3.15
M180 Motorway 4.05
A18 Junction 6.08
The start of the film shows the currently being redeveloped Kirkgate A61 roundabout in Wakefield and then follows a route up past Pinderfields and through Stanley to the M62 at junction 30. Once on the motorway there were road works until after junction 32 but after that it was a straight forward drive through Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire to Brigg.
