M6 interchange, view south, 21 October 1996

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

From this angle, progress on the sliproads linking these two roundabouts can be seen. Originally they connected directly to the M6; to link them to the roundabout beyond the embankment carrying them has been widened and raised considerably so that they can run above the level of the M6 throughout. On the left the culvert beneath the embankment is being extended and the full width of the embankment has yet to be formed over it.

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