WESTWAY FLYOVER, A40, KENSINGTON AND CHELSEA, GREATER LONDON. The gantry lifting a deck beam into position during construction of the Westway Flyover where it spans the canal leading to Paddington Basin.
Work on site for the Western Avenue Extension began on 1st September 1966, and the Westway as it became known was officially opened on 28th July 1970. The elevated highway connecting the A40 at White City to Marylebone Road in Paddington, at around 2 ? miles, was the longest in Europe. The construction was organised into six sections. Sections 1, 4, 5 & 6 formed the main flyover into central London with Sections 2 & 3 being the West Cross Route, running south from the junction in Section 1 near Latimer Road to Shepherds Bush. Different construction techniques were used for Section 6; the road deck was formed from longitudinal beams rather than sections spanning the width of the carriageway. As part of the project, Harrow Road was divided and the northbound carriageway carried on a second deck beneath the main Westway Flyover. This photograph was taken at grid reference TQ

Hospital at night JLP01_10_26669

West Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, West Dorset. A night time view showing part of West Dorset County Hospital fronting an internal courtyard, with the glazed facade of the main stairwell lit up from within.
In the early 1980s plans were developed for a modern hospital to replace the old Dorchester Hospital, at a new site to the west of the town centre. A joint venture of Laing's South West Region and Haden Young Limited were responsible for Phase I of the construction project, which was to provide 149 beds and included maternity and geriatric units, two operating theatres and a pathology and X-ray department. Phase I on the north part of the new site was completed in the late 1980's under the name West Dorset County Hospital. When Phase II on the south part of the site was completed in the mid 1990s, the whole site became known as Dorset County Hospital
