Droitwich Spa
DROITWICH SPA (often abbreviated to Droitwich or D'town) is a town in northern Worcestershire
Worcestershire
, England, on the River Salwarpe . The town was called Salinae in Roman times, then later called Wyche, derived from the Anglo Saxon Hwicce kingdom, referred to as "Saltwich" according to Anglo Saxon charters, with the Droit (meaning "right") added when the town was given its charter on 1 August 1215 by King John . The "Spa" was added in the 19th century when John Corbett developed the town's spa facilities. The River Salwarpe running through Droitwich is likely derived from Sal meaning "salt" and weorp which means "to throw up" i.e. "the river which throws up salt" which overflows from the salt brines. Droitwich is within the Wychavon area – the only Midlands area to be in the Halifax 'Quality of Life Survey' of 2011. It was 6th overall

Concrete
CONCRETE is a composite material composed of coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement that hardens over time. Most concretes used are lime -based concretes such as Portland cement concrete or concretes made with other hydraulic cements , such as ciment fondu . However, asphalt concrete , which is frequently used for road surfaces , is also a type of concrete, where the cement material is bitumen , and polymer concretes are sometimes used where the cementing material is a polymer. When aggregate is mixed together with dry Portland cement and water, the mixture forms a fluid slurry that is easily poured and molded into shape. The cement reacts chemically with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses

Trumpet Interchange
In the field of road transport , an INTERCHANGE is a road junction that typically uses grade separation , and one or more ramps, to permit traffic on at least one highway to pass through the junction without directly crossing any other traffic stream. It differs from a standard intersection , at which roads cross at grade . Interchanges are almost always used when at least one of the roads is a controlled-access highway (freeway or motorway) or a limited-access divided highway (expressway), though they may occasionally be used at junctions between two surface streets

Stack Interchange
A STACK INTERCHANGE (also known as a BUTTERFLY JUNCTION) is a free-flowing, grade-separated junction between two roads. It is referred to as a DIRECTIONAL INTERCHANGE in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets. In countries where one drives on the right , left turns are handled by semi-directional flyovers or under ramps. Vehicles first exit the main carriageway to the right, then complete the turn via a ramp that crosses both highways, eventually merging with the traffic turning right from the opposite side of the interchange. A stack interchange therefore has two pairs of left-turning ramps, which may be "stacked" in various configurations above or below the two interchanging highways. In countries where one drives on the left , the appearance of the junction is topologically identical, but traffic flows are reversed

Australia
and parts of the United States
United States
and Canada), MOTORWAY (in the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand) and EXPRESSWAY (some parts of Canada, parts of the United States, and many Asian countries). Other similar terms include Interstate and parkway . Some of these may be limited-access highways , although this term can also refer to a class of highway with somewhat less isolation from other traffic. In countries following the Vienna convention , the motorway qualification implies they are forbidden for walking or parking, and reserved for the use of motorised vehicles only. A controlled-access highway provides an unhindered flow of traffic, with no traffic signals , intersections or property access
