The bridge crosses the Thames between our old home of Shepperton and Walton on Thames and has been a worsening bottleneck for traffic as long as I can remember, this should move the bottleneck on a few miles.
Newbold Tunnel has coloured lights down its length although most of them were out when we passed through.
