Gravelly Hill Interchange opened. Pictured, the Rt. Hon

Gravelly Hill Interchange opened. Pictured, the Rt. Hon. Mr Peter Walker, Secretary of State for the Environment, cuts the tape at the opening today. The Lancaster red rose was given as a symbol of thanks for the completion of this last section of the motorway system linking Lancashire and the North West with London and the South East. In addition, to symbolise the importance of the occasion for Lancaster, the Lord Mayor of London has today sent a very large bouquet of red roses to the Mayor of Lancaster. The bouquet contains 243 roses, one for each mile between Mansion House, London and the Town Hall of Lancaster. The roses, a welcome gesture of good will, were carried in the first private vehicle to travel from London to the North West through the new Motorway link. 24th May 1972
