For more on Hockley Circus and Flyover, monuments to 1960s road-building brutalism, see SP0588 : Hockley Flyover & Circus, looking towards Newtown, which also comments on the Birmingham Buddhist Maha Vihara temple under construction by a Sri Lankan movement. The temple now has the framework of a pointed stupa. To the right can be seen a subway entrance with one of the relief murals by Bill Mitchell (see SP0588 : Hockley Flyover and subway entrance), described on Google Maps as 'Brutalist Climbing Walls', though that was not their intended use.
