|The road rejoins the highway|
I found the following on the Roads and Maritime website
RMS IS PROPOSING TO CONSTRUCT A THREE LANE UPGRADE AT FORTY BENDS
Realigning the highway at Forty Bends would improve safety and reliability of travel and reduce the likelihood of crashes and potential road closures in winter months due to the formation of black ice. Other safety benefits would include reduced grades and smoother curves.
It seems a few more of the old bends are going to disappear.
