Transport - Westway A40 Extension - London
A rag-and-bone man's horse-drawn cart is allowed on the new Western Avenue Extension for the first and only time, when wives and children of the men who built the 2.5 mile long elevated dual carriageway were guests at a special open day organised for them by the main contractor, John Laing Construction. The extension, known as Westway, which runs from Paddington to White City, was built to relieve congestion at Shepherd's Bush caused by traffic from Western Avenue.
