Street lighting: installation at Gypsy Corner Flyover (2 parts)
|Location||National Archives (see all files stored here)|
|File base||Series MT, subseries MT 106|
This file is concerned mainly with the streetlighting and electrical side of the planned flyover. However the real gem are the large scale plans of the structure. There appears to have been two separate proposals for a flyover during the late 1960s. The earlier plan shows the complete flyover on one 1:2500 map. The later plan is for a slightly longer flyover and this is shown on several 1:500 maps. These larger scale maps also show the exact position and direction of each streetlight together with the under road heating that was also planned.
Included in the paperwork are copies of the legal orders for the scheme, which were set to be published in 1966 but evidently were not.
