M6 interchange, view east, 16 October 1995

M6 interchange, view east (see all photos of the same view)

The new bridges at the M6 interchange are clearly seen here. The steel spans of the new viaduct are, intriguingly, not evenly spaced across the width of the structure. On the right, a new embankment has had its facing slopes completed, and rises above the level of the road to hide the motorway interchange from its surroundings.

South London's lost motorways

Completing the story of London's epic Ringways, we've just published the Southern Radials, five more motorways that never saw the light of day.

To the north east!

Two new additions to our collection of Opening Booklets take us to Darlington and Middlesbrough.

The ghost junction

The only UK motorway that didn’t connect to ordinary roads finally got its own interchange in 2019. But it's not open, because it still doesn’t touch any ordinary roads.
