Copthorne roundabout, Shrewsbury
Copthorne roundabout, Shrewsbury
Until the mid-1990s the road ahead was part of the Shrewsbury bypass on the busy A5. Built in the 1930s, the land around it was heavily developed after World War 2, and it became a major bottleneck as well as a danger to pedestrians. The new dual carriageway A5 now takes a big sweep to the south of the town, and the old bypass is a relatively quiet suburban B road.
