Hill House Farm and Sandy Lane overbridges, view east, 2 June 1997

Hill House Farm and Sandy Lane overbridges, view east (see all photos of the same view)

The motorway line is now very clear and nearing completion between Hill House Farm bridge (in the foreground) and Riley Green (in the far distance, about two miles away). The break in the otherwise nearly completed carriageways, around Sandy Lane bridge in the middle distance, is because the temporary diversion of Sandy Lane has only just been removed. Work is now happening at a rapid pace to join up the sections of road on either side.

Imperfectly Odd: Batheaston Bypass

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.
