SP3080 : Allesley Old Road

near to Allesley, Coventry, Great Britain

Allesley Old Road
Allesley Old Road
To the right is part of the road's original route towards Allesley, now closed off. Both directions of traffic formerly ran on this carriageway until the first quarter of the 20th century when a second carriageway was built behind the trees to the left. In the 1970s a roundabout was constructed to join the existing road system to the new Allesley bypass which involved closing off the end of Allesley Old Road and cutting a new line for the eastbound carriageway through the bank of trees, seen here.

A toll gate was originally located just beyond the white buildings to the right.
