Terminal roundabout, view north (see all photos of the same view)

In the space of three months the terminal roundabout has now been effectively completed and even has some white lines in place. The M65 will not open for almost another two years, but the roundabout and first section of motorway will be used as a diversion for traffic between the A6 and the M6 south while the A6 interchange is reconstructed.
