M61 interchange, view north (see all photos of the same view)

The new viaduct across the M61 is clearly seen here, with sections of the deck now in place. Behind it, the old Brindle Road bridge is on the line of the interchange roundabout, and will be demolished as soon as the new Brindle Lane bridge, in the distance, is complete.
