Riley Green interchange, view south west, 21 October 1996

Riley Green interchange, view south west (see all photos of the same view)

From this angle, it's easier to see the retaining wall on the left that will support the motorway adjacent to the westbound off-slip. At present the wall is standing alone; it will eventually have an embankment piled up against the side nearest the camera to carry the motorway up to the bridge. That sliproad is the only one to require a retaining wall, as it runs closer to the line of the motorway than the others to avoid the buildings on the left.
