Riley Green interchange, view north east, 16 October 1995

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

The shape of the new interchange can now be seen clearly, with one of the two bridge spans in place. The original roundabout has been partly torn up and replaced with a temporary mini-roundabout; at the bottom of the picture the A674 Chorley Road runs single-file under temporary signal control while its new course to the interchange is tied in to the existing road.

Imperfectly Odd: Batheaston Bypass

It has viaducts, a tunnel and plenty of controversy, but the amazing Batheaston Bypass doesn’t really work. What went wrong?

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.

It crosses cattle grids and untamed moorland, it climbs 1-in-4 hills and plummets through hairpin bends, it runs single-track through woodland and historic villages. It's rugged and beautiful. Is it really the A39?
