Opened 6th July 1974.
Looking southeast towards Kimberley; on the left is Eastwood, on the right is Langley Mill.
The greater part of the bypass occupies the site of the Great Northern Railway line and the Nottingham Canal. This photograph is taken from the new bridge linking the old A610 with the bypass. The section in the foreground is to be developed at a later date to carry the bypass beyond Codnor and Ripley in Derbyshire.
