You will probably never take another one like it once the NDR opens...You'll have all that lovely road traffic whizzing past in the back-ground of your shots between the runway and the museum (which will actually make it look like the traffic is on the runway!)

Many thanks for your comments Beefy ! And a happy new year to you ... Oh dear I feel I must update you ... That section of the NDR has been open since the 22nd of December ... The level of that section has been excavated to be below runway height ... The only evidence of the new road, from my photos so far, is the top of a road sign clearly seen in the top left of the photo below, which appeared two weeks ago or so !

Thanks Keith, Happy New year!!

Wow - just how much PUBLIC money have they wasted on the "Road to Nowhere", and yet "they" (conservative council bosses) can keep cutting public services whilst awarding themselves an allowance increase that even the independent review body said they shouldn't have (all other parties agreed that "they" should not accept the increase). The mind boggles :dizzy: And yes, I live near the NDR (Postwick end) and No, I won't EVER be using it.

On the plus side, at least there won't be any additional background clutter to your shots (not a dig at your photos btw!).
