Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 28th April, 2020)
Afternoon Windy Arbour bridge
The MT6 .
Nice one Roger, never thought I would see m6 like that with all traffic we have these days, not even a truck in sight even though it's lockdown so nice and peaceful good pic.
Very good poet.
Certainly a strange sight Roger
It was more quieter than that in 1997, when it was closed because of suspected IRA bombs being found under a bridge in the midlands
Great family-name, Roger, and great is your bright 'n' breezy photo. I remember myself and two others, standing on the bridge at the time it all kicked-off, just to see the cars and bikes go whizzing by, and, also, a rather old 'bridge' being in the vicinity, some year's before, by which our group of five had driven to the Bolton v Everton game in December '58 - that's the only memory I have of that 'bridge'. Everton won the game 3-0, but Nat had a tap-in ruled-out, and I still have the programme. It's nice to know that roads, whether they be smooth or clickety-clack, are so much talked about. Long may they roll.
That's my kind of motorway.
I have to admit I love the peace and quiet of traffic less roads, hearing seems more sensitive to more natural sounds. Everything seems cleaner... I know it won't last. I even think it is having a good effect on the weather in such a short time...
Nice lines Veebs. Take care.
How odd to see it like that! Reminds me of when we went to Ireland for my 50th birthday. On the Sunday morning we travelled from Portumna to Galway on the motorway and passed two cars!
I spot a solitary car.
I can remember this cut through being gouged out with large Euclid TS-18 scrapers many years ago, was fascinating watching the big machines take bites out of the hill.
I have notice though, the traffic has got more and more everyday.
I need a sherry.
Pour one for me and Veronica, Garry, please. We can sit two metres apart. xx
