Remembering the Bristol Temple Way Flyover

I moved to Bristol in the 1990s and living in Southville and working at Ashley Down meant that driving home I had the fun that was driving over the Temple Way flyover.

I remember the first time I did it, thinking, what is this, is this a real road? I would often decide to drive over it even if it wasn’t quite the best way to get where I was going.

It was never for the faint hearted, though I never heard of a car driving off the side of it.

The flyover was taken down in 1998 as part of road changes in that area.

I believe it was actually sold to another council.

Of course today there are ongoing roadworks in that area in order to improve traffic flows.
