M49 motorway

The M49 motorway is a 5 miles motorway west of Bristol, England, that forms a link between the M5 motorway (junction 18) and the Second Severn Crossing on the M4 motorway (junction 22). It was constructed in 1996, at the same time as the bridge and is unique as it is only accessible from other motorways. The original plans provided for an intermediate junction with the A403 to serve an expanded industrial area, but neither came to fruition.

Located at 51.5375, -2.6397 (Lat. / Lng.), about 2 miles away.

A403 road

The A403 is a road in the United Kingdom that starts at junction 1 of the M48 at Aust and leads to Avonmouth in Bristol. It is important as a major route for the industries there, allowing easy travel access to Wales and South and East England. The A403 was opened in about 1970 after the Severn Bridge was opened in 1966, to provide a direct route between the then M4 motorway and Avonmouth. It was initially known as the Avonmouth Aust Coast Road.

New Passage

New Passage is a small hamlet in South Gloucestershire, England located on the banks of the Severn estuary near the village of Pilning. It derives its name from the ferry service which operated between there and South Wales before the late 19th century, when it lost out in competition with the Aust Ferry slightly upstream.

English Stones

The English Stones are a rocky outcrop in the Severn Estuary between Caldicot, Monmouthshire, and Severn Beach. Because the area is exposed at low tide, and is a rare spot of solid land in the highly tidal estuary, it has long been considered a good location to build barrages, dams or bridges. It was recently used as a foundation in the construction of the Second Severn Crossing.

Located at 51.5664, -2.68669 (Lat. / Lng.), about 1 miles away.
