Runcorn Expressway Sign - Coppermine - 2633.jpg
Runcorn Expressway Sign

A blue-bordered local sign in Runcorn showing 'Expressway' as a destination. Although odd, this is understandable here as a through route has been diverted through a housing estate and it would be easy to become lost.

A553 Southern Expressway

The A553 Southern Expressway at the point it meets the A5126 (to the left) and straight ahead becomes the Central Expressway. This image also shows the high mast lighting, yet to be removed, alongside its low level replacement.

This shot of the A533 Southern Expressway heading towards Whitehouse, this after high mast lighting was removed in 2006, due to the rising cost of energy.

A533 heading north just after the Bridge. There used to be streetlights in the central reservation but they've been cut off leaving just the bases sticking out the ground.

Siemens helios signal on the Halton bussway in Runcorn

Simple installation for the Bussway, only thing that is unusual is for the fact they are not older mellor heads on the bussway crossing, as most are.

Silver Jubilee South Interchange 1970 plan.png
Planned layout of Silver Jubilee South Junction dating from 1970 as part of proposals to widen the Silver Jubilee Bridge. This layout is far superior to the trumpet that was built instead as the main traffic flow is to and from the bridge rather than the Runcorn expressways.
Buses at Murdishaw Centre - Geograph - 3253724.jpg
Buses at Murdishaw Centre Murdishaw is a major stop on the Runcorn Busway, a dedicated bus only road that serves most of Runcorn new town. Except at bus stops, pedestrians are not permitted on the busway, hence the provision of the footbridge (left background) to allow access to the shops from the houses south of the busway. The two buses seen here are operating the busway circular service, which circumnavigates the main part of the busway at frequent intervals. Contrary to appearances, they are running in opposite directions: all buses stop on the same side of the busway here, regardless of direction of travel, with westbound buses using the turning circle to access the bus stop (see 3253710). Other services that use the busway go further afield; for example there are buses from here to Warrington, Widnes, and Liverpool, among others.
