M6 interchange, view south, 12 January 1995

M6 interchange, view south (see all photos of the same view)

Foundations can be seen for the three bridges that will form the future M6 interchange. The location of the old Cuerden footbridge, in the foreground, is clearly a problem - it's in the path of the long viaduct that will carry the M65 - which is why its replacement, in the distance, is nearing completion so early in the project.
