M61 interchange, view west, 21 October 1996

M61 interchange, view west (see all photos of the same view)

This view of the interchange shows how much of it now has road beds and surface layers in place. In the foreground, the embankment leading up to the viaduct was only completed in the last few months, and so progress here is not so far advanced as on the rest of the junction. Some heavy plant can be seen putting finishing touches to the earthworks here.
