Barnstaple Downstream Bridge

We haven't had a bridge for a couple of months, so why not have one under construction, just for a change?! Taken from the north Bank of the Taw.

Give Way - Coppermine - 10714.jpg
Give Way

Part of the Barnstaple Bypass involved changing the bottom of Old Stickepath Hill a dead end. When I was there back in December, the Give Way sign still stood (it still stood when I did that tour for BigToe in the latter part of January, but the yellow diversion sign did not!).

The bridge in the background is the Station Viaduct, bringing in the road from the new A39 roundabout to the roundabout (possibly going to be signalised) before the main bridge itself.

Resurfacing work on the A361 at Barnstaple. I don't think we've ever had a photo of people working before, so it might make a nice change...

A39 Hazard Posts 2

This picture taken part way through the 'offending' section shows that since the previous picture (taken on a bridge just behind), the posts have changed from being the red/white ones to being orange ones. A 'Queues Likely' sign can be seen mounted on the bridge, giving one wonder over what may happen during these likely queues and emergency vehicles...

Since this photo was taken the bollards have been removed and the route was renumbered A361 with the opening of the Barnstaple Western Bypass

A361 - The First Cars over the Barnstaple 'Downstream' Bridge

Taken on the day of opening 23/05/07: A little vague, but you can just about see the first batch of cars that went over the bridge; it was a police car... Unfortunately, I was too far away to get a decent shot of the first proper car.
