A6 Alvaston Bypass how it should have been - Coppermine - 8050.jpg
A6 Alvaston Bypass how it should have been

This is yet another example of a modern cheap fix. At the A50 end is a nice trumpet and the A52 end is another nice GSJ. The Alvaston Bypass provided a golden opportunity to link these GSJ's with a nice stretch of freeflowing road. Instead it was built on the cheap with two intermediate roundabouts. The A50 trumpet is sort of wasted in this respect. This map shows what could have been if things were thought out a little better. Both roundabouts are GSJs and the A5111 GSJ even allows North to West freeflow.

Cast iron B5021 pre-Worboys road number about 15 ft. above ground level at the former junction and end of the B5021 in St. Peter's Churchyard in Derby. Junction was with the former A6 (St. Peter's St.). This location has been pedestrianized since the early 1980's. Sign was obviously repainted (by whom?) shortly before the photograph was taken. Photograph date 26 December 2009.

A busy traffic island - Geograph - 5313601.jpg
A busy traffic island This is the junction of the A52 with Derby outer ring road forming part of the A38. It is one of the few such junctions that does not have a fly-over and so is the scene of some traffic jams.
Blue Peter, Alvaston - Geograph - 2570842.jpg
Blue Peter, Alvaston The Blue Peter at Alvaston opened January 1935. It was the first of three pubs to be opened in Derby using identical designs. They were operated by Offilers, the Derby brewer which later became part of Bass. The other pubs sharing the same art deco style design, resembling ocean liners, are The Blue Boy at Chaddeston which opened Jan 1936 and The Blue Pool at Sunnyhill (now a Tesco Express) which opened in May 1936.

And here's a roundabout I made earlier Blue Peter was a racehorse, but he came along after the eponymous pub was opened in 1935, which gave the traffic island its name.
