The future lane will run off the current road just behind me and, this part will be closed completely. Whilst here, I had one loud 'Oi!' and a 'What are you doing?' The idea that taking photos is 'wrong', is slowly taking hold in the public consciousness.

Looking down Bincombe lane from the hairpin. The farmhouse will soon be hidden behind an embankment, across the road.

Climbing out under then, over the railway, via the hairpin. The faded old sign ekes out its last few months of existence.

Over the railway to the newly hatched out S2/1, with only months to go before its closed anyway.

Heading south at the future tie-in point with the new road from Weymouth on the left. Queues for Weymouth can start here, about 2-3 miles from the town centre.

Heading down to the hairpin bend already shown in the Gallery. Ironically, the new A354 will look like this, although wider and for a far greater length. Portland visible in the distance.

Start of the S2/1 just above the hairpin. Railway runs underneath just here. The 30 limit is irrelevant below this point as the bend and hill mean anything higher is unlikely and, it is ignored once onto the 2 lanes.

April 7 2009. 4 months since work started, after the archaeological dig was completed. Railway down below the trees. This is either going to be a steep climb or, a deep cutting.

Chesil Beach stretches into the distance, as the A354 climbs steeply up onto Portland. It was realigned away from the edge in 1996 and, this shows the point of divergence. July 15 2008

Inscription explains all. Stone is still quarried today. St Pauls Cathedral is one such product.

Looking south at a computer pic of the new A354 into Weymouth. 'Old' road is shown as narrow scar, which bears left to the hairpin, -which is removed in this pic- and down into Broadwey. The new road was a D2, now its an S2/1.
