The M2 (northbound) at Glengormley
See <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/568568'>J3477 : Almost dead stop on the M2, Belfast</a>. The view outwards from the Hightown Road bridge near Glengormley. The abutment for the new bridge is at lower left. The inside lane is closed to traffic but in use by contractors� vehicles. (The Google map shows this bridge as going under rather than over the motorway).

Hightown Road bridge over M2, Glengormley

To allow the widening of the M2 to 3+2 to 3+3 lanes, the Hightown Road bridge is being rebuilt. The new bridge will also be 3 lanes wide to allow improvements to the local road above. The temporary footbridge is actually a thin sliver of the finished bridge. Taken from the truncated end of Hightown Road.

Sandyknowes roundabout near Belfast (4)
See <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/596287'>J3082 : Sandyknowes roundabout near Belfast (1)</a>. The slip road to Scullions Road <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/596290'>J3082 : Sandyknowes roundabout near Belfast (2)</a> is in the foreground. The off-slip from the M2 <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/596302'>J3082 : Sandyknowes roundabout near Belfast (3)</a> is at middle right. The south-bound on-slip to Belfast is behind the flyover to the right. The full-time lights have made negotiation of the roundabout somewhat safer and less fraught.
