A31 � old and new

The top picture here looks at the A31 northeastbound at St. Ives, Dorset. The dual carriageway was installed in the late 1960s, leaving the old road (below, looking southwestbound) to resemble a country lane.

This is the view from the footbridge over the main road, and from the bottom of the footbridge along the old road � at SU121037.

M3 J9 and J10 improvements - Coppermine - 15259.png
M3 J9 and J10 improvements

This is my idea to improve junctions 9 and 10 of the M3, giving free-flow access to/from the A34 and A31, by combining them in one fork just south of junction 9. The current junction 10 would close and the fork would become J10 (to avoid mucking up the numbering), with the current A31 south of the middle roundabout becoming a single-carriageway B-road (not sure what the number is). I've also grade separated the A31/A272/B3404 junction.

Dating from at least the 1960's, this is a good layout, designed for this specific location, rectangular, with straight sides on the east and west sides and easy wide exits. Unlike today's standard off the shelf products, identical in shape -circular- and, only varying in size, with tight deflections at exits, especially for lorries.
