A6 overbridge, view west 2, 2 June 1997

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

Work around the A6 bridge is now confined to the motorway boundaries, with the extra land acquired for the diversion and the area around the new roundabout being returned to their normal state. At the very bottom of the picture, rolls of black waterproofing membrane can be seen rolled out under a top layer of sand.

To the north east!

Two new additions to our collection of Opening Booklets take us to Darlington and Middlesbrough.
