The fairly new bridge across Huddlesford Lane is the result of upgrading the West Coast Main Line (Trent Valley) to four tracks in 2007. Preparatory work for HS2 is now under way off to the right, and the road is being used by a lot of heavy lorries on both sides of the railway line. The traffic operator in high-vis clothing is in contact by radio with the drivers of the many vehicles so that lights can be changed to red, enabling minimal delay to the work progress. Sometimes several appeared at once, and at other times they passed under the bridge in both directions every two or three minutes.

Some maps mark this as Park Lane. Maybe someone local can clarify for us.
