Anyone who has ever driven along the A38 bypass (Roman Way) around Droitwich may well wonder what the two hills are either side of the huge Westlands roundabout.

They were constructed as part of a 1960s master plan for the town’s expansion as supports for a flyover.

They now stand as a monument to council cost-cutting and a disregard for residents on the Westlands estate, who have had to take their lives in their hands crossing the busy roads ever since.
