M61 interchange and Brindle Road overbridge, view south, 4 October 1994

M61 interchange and Brindle Road overbridge, view south (see all photos of the same view)

The M61 interchange is barely an outline on the ground, but work is well advanced on the new Brindle Road overbridge across the M61. Its completion was needed as early as possible in the project so the existing Brindle Road bridge, in the middle of the picture, could be demolished. The old bridge stood in the way of the northernmost bridge of the future M61 interchange.

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.
