M25 B 93.2 [mad bridge] – contains a series of photographs taken by Phil Coy on 17th July 2019. They document land ownership parcel: 11648; a plot designated for redevelopment as part of the construction of Heathrow Third Runway expansion.
This particular land ownership parcel is located between Heathrow Airport’s western perimeter, the anti-clockwise carriageway of the M25 at driver location point M25 B 93.2, and the Bath Road bridge over the Wraysbury River and M25. The site also encloses the disused Mad Bridge section of Bath Road bridging the Wraysbury River.
The M25 is one of Europe’s busiest motorways, and Heathrow ranks as the second busiest airport in the world for international passenger traffic. In 2018 the average flow of traffic at driver location point M25 B 93.2 was 219,492 vehicles per day, and a record 80.1 million passengers passed through Heathrow.
