The usual evening trouble at junction 8 - the M5 and M6 collide, resulting in this heavy congestion stretching most of the way through the West Midlands in both directions on a daily basis.

Northbound on the Thelwall Viaduct. Long-term roadworks meant that, for years, most traffic in both directions was on the newer, narrower viaduct. Visible on the left is the original viaduct, which was out of service at the time this picture was taken.

The Thelwall Viaduct, as seen from the River Mersey. The older Viaduct is in the foreground, with the newer (southbound) one behind it.

Southbound on the Preston Bypass, approaching the A59. The road here has been widened and realigned now to the extent that it's virtually unrecognisable as the oldest motorway in the country.

Southbound, approaching Lancaster Forton services and their famous observation tower. When the services opened, this was a restaurant with table service, but the tower is now closed and in disrepair.

Approaching the A683, the substandard junction in the middle of the Lancaster Bypass, the signing warns of the sharp bend on the sliproad.
