Description:Looking East. In a year, the Manchester Airport Approach road should merge into this road from the right, through the yellow pillars which support the airfield approach lights.

The new A555 road alignment has to "thread the needle" over Styal Road, crossing the railway line to the south and then the railway line into the airport (which lies in a cutting just behind the wire fence to the right of this road).

This scene has already changed in recent years, with the Metrolink (tram) line, visible on the left of the picture, now running past the photographer's left shoulder and then under this road into the Airport Transport interchange.

  • this is the 'before' half of a 'before & after' set which I expect to update in December 2017. Mike
