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.

I only lived in Bristol from 1997-2000, and could have sworn it was there the whole time I was, as I drove over it several times. But apparently not.
