Melling/Maghull – Photo of that odd M58 Motorway junction by Ashworth Hospital

Click on the photo to enlarge it

I posted about this ‘one way’ Motorway junction back in March this year but did not have a photo of it at the time, so here’s one now.

What you are looking at is where you would expect there to be a slip road down onto the M58 to travel towards Switch Island. But of course there never has been one as you can only use this odd junction to travel east towards Skelmersdale or leave the M58 here if travelling west. This is in fact where the gated Giddygate Lane finishes presently and it will have to be moved to accommodate the upgraded junction.

My previous posting that talks about when it is likely that this junction will become a full junction is accessible below:-
