Tramway Lane underbridge, view south (see all photos of the same view)

Work has yet to start on the underbridge, but the Walton Summit Motorway and its small terminal roundabout have already been mostly completed. These works were accelerated at the start of the contract so that the existing M61 link road, seen here just above the roundabout, and which lay in the path of the future M65, could be removed.

What's new

London’s other forgotten motorways

We’ve spent years documenting the unbuilt urban motorway network planned for London. Today we’re unveiling more new routes that have never been seen before!

The middle of nowhere

Not so Smart

There have been rumours for months. Now the announcement has been made - “all new Smart Motorways scrapped”. What does this mean and who are the winners?
