View east from Riley Green interchange to Stanworth rock cutting (see all photos of the same view)

Riley Green Interchange occupies the centre of this picture, with Stanworth rock cutting just out of frame at the top on this occasion. With the A675, on the left, diverted onto its new course, the old road has been dug up, allowing deep excavation to begin for bridge foundations.
