Walton Summit Motorway, looking east (see all photos of the same view)

The Walton Summit Motorway is already completed and in service, and its full length can be seen here. At the bottom of the picture, Tramway Lane has yet to be tied in to the small roundabout; at the top, work has started on building bridge piers for the viaduct that will carry the M65 over the M61 interchange.

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
