The recently-opened M8 starts at this roundabout, just north of Fermoy. Note the unusual destination, 'Toll'.

N1/A1 upgrade at the end of the M1
Clearance for the new road can be seen to the left of the picture. The first structure, a bridge carrying a local road, is nearing completion just north of this point. The roundabout which currently forms the end of the improved road is straight ahead. This roundabut will evemtually form part of the dumbbell interchange at this point.

New roundabout and school, Omagh The location is at the junction of Bankmore Road and the Crevenagh Road
N4 widening project
Approaching N4 on the R120 northbound. Major roadworks here for a year or so to GSJ this junction and widen the N4 which is the last one between the M50 and M4 to need this treatment. Finally it will soon be freeflow from M50 to the M4 and onwards. N4 could possibly get motorway restrictions here when these works are finished but unlikely IMO.

Birmingham, Ashted Circus Approaching Ashted Circus via the A4540, Lawley Middleway. Notice the different styles of road signs ahead:
?? two red triangle (hazard) signs warn respectively of the roundabout and that there are roadworks on the road to the left;
?? the brown sign with white lettering is typical of the type of sign used to give directions to tourist attractions. They usually include pictograms; examples in this case include silhouettes of a flower (for the Botanical gardens), a boat (for the canal) etc.
?? two temporary signs with black text on a yellow background provide details of diversion routes or direction signs through roadworks.
