Mancunian Way

One of the pictures to be seen until 7th July at my exhibition 'There's a Rainbow in the Road' at Salford Museum and Art Gallery

Manchester Modernist Society says:

"Things to note about the Mancunian Way: it doesn’t have any junction numbers; the speed limit is 50mph; it was designed to improve flow of traffic but simultaneously impedes pedestrian access; and most bizarre of all – it’s built on a fault line – resulting in serious consequences for the rigidly engineered structure should there be an earthquake in Manchester. (It’s constantly monitored to ensure that no cracks are developing)"
