SE end of the overwater section of the Severn Bridge, Aust
After nearly a mile (c1.6m) over water (the River Severn) the M48 on the right and the parallel footpath and cycleway reach land at Aust. When the bridge opened in 1966, this was the M4 motorway.
It became the M48 when the route of the M4 was switched to the new road across the second Severn bridge, about 5km to the SW, which opened in 1996.
