There'd be no M5 to your holidays, you'd get stuck on the Exeter bypass

Worse, 2 lane M5, get off the at the Ross spur, then take A38 all the wsy to Weston.
Exeter, that would have been a treat!

Someone mentioned Digbeth flyover, you couldn’t use it going into town only outbound, it seemed to be constructed miraculously quickly and eliminated grid lock for years!
The angle of the bend added to the narrowness of the roadway itself meant it was no longer suitable when trailer lengths increased from 40 ft to over 13 metres.
Hence its demises.
