A good turn of speed should be possible down here. Perhaps a cycle Gatso may be needed.

View north from the GSJ. 40 with a Gatso, probably the same one from the old road. Only temporary though. Note coned off 3rd lane on the uphill side. A good feature when 2 lorries are side by side on the hill.

Joining the A419 from Blunsdon, for a coffee at Sainsburys, off the A420 junction. The price was reduced from £1.05 to £1.02, due to the VAT cut. Wow
