Riley Green interchange, view south west (see all photos of the same view)

The new interchange is now taking shape, with embankments in place except around the unfinished bridge. At the bottom left, the old course of the A674 has been partly removed already and is much narrower than when it carried traffic. It will eventually be removed entirely.

To the north east!

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

Aust to Beachley

Today two motorways cross the Severn near Chepstow. But as recently as 1965, the only crossing was a ferry that carried six cars at a time, from Aust to Beachley.
