Abandoned Dual Carriageway

Abandonment. Overgrown, littered and decaying. A dual carriageway that was built but never used.

Whilst visiting my sister in South Wales last week I simply had to visit this abandoned stretch of road near Newport. It is gated off to the public and has never been used for traffic. Since the workmen left the crash barriers have been stolen for scrap and the road surface has been taken over by piles of fly tipped rubbish and the encroaching moss and foliage from the verges as Mother Nature reclaims what was once hers.
