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.

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

A national system of road numbers radiating from a central point suggests there is… well, a central point. But if you go looking for it you’ll find it doesn’t exist.

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?
