M6 interchange, view west, 20 July 1995

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

The future M6 junction is a hive of activity here. On the right, the site-long haul road crosses the M6 by a completed bridge; on the left another has its piers in place and steel bridge spans have arrived on site for it. Through the middle of the picture, piers are being cast for the long viaduct over the M6, and foundations for its western end can be seen towards the bottom.
