Before the Batheaston Bypass the A46 ran through the village of Swainswick. The steep windy road was clearly unsuitable for the heavy traffic that used it, and the route had several escape lanes for vehicles that had run out of control. Sadly this lorry didn't make it safely to one and turned over onto its side.
