A690 through Houghton-le-Spring
The A690 dual carriageway cuts through Houghton-le-Spring. It has grade-separated junctions with other roads - these are junctions where traffic leaves or joins the dual carriageway using slip roads, so that the junctions themselves aren't directly on the main road. This enables traffic on the main road to pass through without being hindered by other roads crossing. In this image, the main road is in the centre with a slip road on either side.
