Progress in leaps and bounds now, in the 70-72 period. The M6 reaches the M1 at last, via Ravioli Junction. No, hang on.....

M6 sign at Gretna

Taken at the carpark exit from the Gretna outlet village. As you can see, the M6 has been completed across the Cumberland gap and runs all the way to Glasgow! This section of A74(M) was one of the first to be constructed, so gives a clear idea of what the authorities had in mind

Blackbrook By-pass

This is how the Blackbrook by-pass should look when it opens in Early 2007. Note the Crappy MS Paint 'P' sign for parking! There will be a spur from Vicarage Road (the present A58), which will be numbered A599. The current A58 between this spur and the East Lancs Road junction i presume will be stopped up

Look, no motorways ! This area changed fairly significantly over 12 months between 1958 and 1959, but some small parts of 'Road Archeology' can still be found. The numbers signify the locations of the 2005 photo numbers.

Hucks Brow in Technicolor!

60's view of same. The bend has been widened to S3 and, the S3 up to Shap seems to start much further down the hill than it does now, by the layby. Possibly a Rover 2000 or a Ford Classic in nearer layby, which is also wider than in the 50's. Very quiet on this day.
