NS4272 : Final mile west on the M8

taken 8 years ago, near to Bishopton, Renfrewshire, Great Britain

Final mile west on the M8
Final mile west on the M8
Built in the mid 1970s, this humble two lane rural section with few bridges and only two junctions was reputedly Britain's first million pounds per mile stretch of motorway. Effectively the Bishopton Bypass, it runs from what was a temporary junction where the M8 passes under the A8 just east of Bishopton (the bridge in the distance in this linked photo NS4468 : M8 westbound) to Junction 31 at Westferry .
