Gorton Brook underbridge, view north, 3 April 1995

Gorton Brook underbridge, view north (see all photos of the same view)

The new underbridge structure appears nearly complete here, and will later be covered when the motorway embankment is built on top of it. Brindle Road, running across the bottom of the picture, was severed when the M65 was built, so the underbridge here is not designed for general traffic and is simply a farm access for the fields to the north.

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.
