New structure at old M50 toll-Bridge location

    Any idea what they're building off-line at the old toll plaza location on the M50? There's a new mass concrete structure going up in the "layby" area they are using for the service vehicles etc where the old plaza was, SB. Thought it was a office or a store at first but the concrete structure doesn't seem to be taking that sort of shape.

    Any ideas? Just curious.

    Maybe it's a fitting memorial to the toll booths.



    A giant sized brown envelope?

    The construction is all on one side only as in it's not a shell to be turned into something later. Just a standalone structure. I'll try get a snap in the am if I remember passing (don't worry I have a handsfree camera ;) )

    Seeing as thats where M50 Concession seem to base their operations from I'd guess salt barn also. They're responsible for salting the M50.

    Here's the photo I got of it this morning. There's now a steel structure opposite it.

    A salt barn does seem the most logical suggestion but the structures shape isn't looking like it just yet.

    Where are M50 Concession getting the salt from currently? Have they another store themselves off the M50 or do they use one of the councils yards as storage?

    (Sorry dont know how to insert photos into message)
