At the top of Church Road is the Coventry Road and the Swan underpass, built in 1967. The north-west corner is occupied by a sinusoidal blue office block known as Equipoint. This would fit in nicely in the modern city centre but is glaringly out of place here. As usual, signs carry advertisements for zillions of square feet of vacant space.
I remember when the underpass was being built, we could walk all over the Coventry Road without fear of the traffic.
