M6 interchange, view east, 29 April 1996

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

The viaduct crossing the M6 is the main feature of this picture. Deck sections are in place over the M6 itself but not elsewhere - presumably these were lifted in during a closure of the motorway, while other parts of the viaduct can be worked on at any time. A section of the roundabout on the right is well under way, ahead of works on the rest of the junction, because that isolated part is needed very shortly to carry diverted traffic around works elsewhere.

Imperfectly Odd: Batheaston Bypass

It has viaducts, a tunnel and plenty of controversy, but the amazing Batheaston Bypass doesn’t really work. What went wrong?

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.
