A view from down below

Published on 21 October 2017

It's all been about bridges lately. The Mersey Gateway Bridge opened just last week, and in the last couple of months all eyes were on Scotland for the opening of the Queensferry Crossing.

This week, we wanted to leave behind the news coverage and offer a different view. So - rather unusually for a website about roads - we commandeered a boat and brushed up on our knowledge of railway infrastructure to bring you a new photo gallery of the Forth Bridges, with a tour and some spectacular pictures of the Queensferry Crossing, the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth (Rail) Bridge seen from the Forth itself.

Whether you're a regular, crossing the Forth every day and seeing the view from up above, or you're just curious about the most remarkable showcase of British civil engineering that can be seen in one location, we think it's an alternative view that's well worth a look.

Road numbering is a system with clear rules. What happens when the people responsible for numbering roads don't follow them?

We need to talk about Wisley

National Highways are spending a third of a billion pounds rebuilding one of the most congested junctions on the M25. Is it money well spent?

Oxford's Ground Zero

Oxford's Zero Emission Zone is just a trial, but transport policy in Oxford has become the catalyst for pitched battles and drawn in protestors from across the UK. What's happening to this genteel university town?

M1 Architecture

The most unique motorway in Britain owes its identity to its fifties architecture. Much of it is in danger of being removed or irreperably altered. This page documents it in detail.
