Blackfirs Lane in 1996 - Blackfirs Lane, Solihull taken in 1996 showing the road narrowed to S1 after it was closed to traffic. I'm not sure when this took place but the grass on the right looks well established. Today I suspect it's even more overgrown. EDIT- this is now on Google Street View and the vegetation is completely overgrown.

Brecon - what a relief

Relief road through demolished houses, new traffic lights for pedestrians on castle street. Note: turn right is in the centre of the pedestrian controlled lights zone. The original listed houses on the Left were demolished by mistake when the relief road was constructed... they had to be rebuilt but lack the bow fronted shop windows amongst other features.

Norman Road, Smethwick 2007

This is the same view after Sandwell Council carried out another road safety scheme. The zebra crossing is now a puffin and the road has been narrowed so passing a cyclist at the crossing is now more risky than before. Oh yeah, a couple of Gatsos have gone up as well.

Tame Road-Queensway Brandhall 2007

The same location in 2007. These traffic lights have made the local press on several occasions due to the delays they cause by being stuck at a red light when there's no traffic around. The road to the right was added to serve the new Co-op but it also allows motorists to avoid the second set of lights and speeds of up to 60mph have been reported as people try to beat the lights. Another feature not found in the earlier picture is the addition of speed humps in the foreground.

This 'after' view shows how much the road has been narrowed by restriping it with a formal parking bay and adding a buildout at the crossing.

Slow down, briefly

West Saltoun is a picture-postcard hamlet about 25km south-east of Edinburgh, and is one of many such places in East Lothian. Only about 60 metres separate its speed limit delimiters - could this possibly be one of the shortest stretches of restricted road in Scotland?

The former Tramway / footbath viaduct crossed the Wallberry ravine at this point. The foundation to the central pier can be seen in the middle of the photo. Partly engulfed by infill tipped when the road was cut into the cliff in the 1950s.

In the distance the Douglas side abutment of the viaduct can be seen

Standing on the carraigeway at Wallberry - the road markings are still just about visible though this section of the A37 has been out of use for around 30 years.

Marine Drive - Horse Leap Collapse

Close up of the road collapse at Horse Leap showing how the footpath and road edge has completely gone. At this point the road is also under threat from slates which fall from the cliff onto the carraigeway.

Recently it was suggested that the A37 could reopen as a relief road into Douglas which suffers severe traffic congestion at peak hours. The cost of repairs at Horse Leap was put at �2 million. It was not proceded with.

I followed to One Way signs thinking they were the exit from the local Health Centre (which has just rebuilt its entire car park, and I end up finding a dead end... let's see what happens when we turn around...

After a deviation along a rerouted A30, we return to the original bypass, although now u/c The wide bit on the right appeared in the 60's, implying a D2 was on its way. It never progressed beyond this though.

A64-21-Manor Heath sign - Coppermine - 1629.jpg
A64-21-Manor Heath sign

The main street through Copmanthorpe is Manor Heath. The reason why I took this photo is because the sign is actually a considerable distance away from the roadside, presumably because the road was diverted when the A1237 junction was built. Originally it would have crossed the A64 and then headed off past Askham Bryan College and onto Askham Richard.
