Riley Green interchange, view north east (see all photos of the same view)

In the last three months Riley Green has come much closer to completion. The bridges now have parapets, guard rails and their decorative fascias have been installed; on top a road surface has been laid. The roundabout itself has not yet been fully laid out on the right.

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