    There are lots of disused and never-used roads and bridges in the world. But the Road to Nowhere in Yate, in south-west England, does still sometimes have traffic driving on it. And crashing on it.

This feels like the sort of video I'd have made years ago: just me and a GoPro in a weird bit of infrastructure. Normally at this point I'd thank all the folks I worked with, but today, it's just me. So, uh, thank you, me.

A couple of people came down my road once, recognising it as having been used for filming by The Bill crew on multiple occasions - thinking that they could walk right down to the end, follow the road around to the right, and carry on walking along. I pointed out that no, they actually couldn't - just after that bend, the road came to a dead stop (with two separate footpaths, the entrance to a cul-de-sac and some parking spaces behind another small estate, rail lines, and a Railtrak equipment yard all coming off it, but I didn't go into that much detail). They insisted the road continued on around the corner, they'd seen it on the show before with police cars coming screaming around that corner and shooting up our road at 50mph. They thought they knew the area better than I did, and I've lived here all my life. Well I wished them a good day and walked off and they then walked down, around the bend, and came...to nothing. Honestly, I'm so impressed that those stunt drivers can get a car cornering that fast when it's coming out of a literal dead-end like that (there's like 60ft of road round there!), they can really sell it well on camera. :D :D :D

Imagining Tom sets up a camera, starts recording, walks 16 yards away from it, turns and walks back to it while talking to himself, picks it up, introduces it to the road and then suggests they take a walk... Thanks for the effort you put in for the video...

We've got a road like that in Burlington VT. Not as a film set but, as a half-built highway. A good portion of it is now covered by a home-built skatepark: 44.44666796074772, -73.21106983906739

There used to be a road like that where I live but it was sold about 20 years ago and now the land is a racetrack. There’s only like 3 races a year, I think the guy just wanted a private track to drive his antique F1 car. Same reason too, they started then were too cheap to build a required bridge. Now they are building that bridge like a kilometre down stream .

This is so convenient. Unlike in NYC, which is host to over 50 TV shows (they boast on their digital kiosks, which include city trivia) and God knows how many movies, and they'll just shut down whole streets and park trailers right in the middle of where you need to go. And despite all this, I have never seen a celebrity.

Sometimes, a road like that does get completed. The bridge at -25.775124, 27.831583 in South Africa is a (locally) well known example of a bridge in the middle of nowhere, and the road adjacent to it with a bridge across the lake used to end at a T-junction right after the lake for many, many years, but recently the road that that bridge should have served was completed and the road now continues through the gap between the hills (where on older Google Maps photographs the abandoned blasting can be seen). In fact, if you move south from this bridge in the middle of nowhere you can see a gap between two more hills where the road was planned to have gone all those many decades ago.

In german we have a term for bridges that stand around in the middle of nowhere: Soda-Brücke, which roughly translates into justhere-bridge, because the bridge stands just there.

For decades there was an unfinished set of interchange bridges, three levels, two bridges each level, over Interstate 84 west of Hartford Connecticut USA, for a kind of ring road that never was built. (Not building did save a nice forest north of the bridge.). I no longer live in that part of the country, and understand that it was finally torn down, presumably to avoid needing further maintenance on it.

I may be crazy but there's plenty of unfinished roads where I live. I drive for ubereats and just last week I had an order that gave very specific instructions on how to get to their house because the road was never complete, there's about 15 feet of grass between the road they live on and the road Google Maps thinks they live on. This is in the middle of a developed suburb, and this is actually a fairly common occurrence here, it's just usually more than 15 feet. I would say even more common is the 3 way intersection disguised as a 4 way intersection, then if you go to the other side of the trees you'll find the road the intersection is supposed to connect to.
