A6 overbridge, view north (see all photos of the same view)

The bridge carrying the A6 was later to be finished than many others, but work to complete the road underneath has now caught up with the sections of motorway to either side. The temporary diversion that carried the A6 to the left of the bridge is now completely removed.
