M6 Lancaster By-pass opening day (2) 1960
M6 Lancaster By-pass opening day (2) 1960
This section of the M6 (here at Junction 34) was opened on 1st April 1960; before the opening ceremony pedestrians were allowed onto the bridge over the River Lune, giving a unique opportunity for a photograph. This view south towards the slip road shows that originally the road had only 2 lanes in each direction. The third lane was added later from the wide central reservation, which had no crash barrier.
