A6 overbridge, view west, 10 January 1996

A6 overbridge, view west (see all photos of the same view)

The A6 overbridge, at the very bottom of the picture, is still awaiting its bridge spans lifting into place - they have been on site for three months, since the last set of pictures. Until the bridge is finished, no further work can be done to excavate the cutting, which is blocked by the existing A6.
