SCRIPT
Footage filmed on Wednesday shows the M-30 highway being diverted through the Vincente Calderon, Atletico Madrid's former stadium.
The road had been closed for several weeks but re-opened recently - only with a twist.
Cars now drive in front of the main stand and directly over the pitch, where the likes of Fernando Torres, Sergio Aguero and Antoine Griezmann have all plied their trade in recent years.
Many fans have taken to social media to express their sadness at the once hallowed turf being turned into a highway, while others have called for the stand to remain in place as a permanent momento.
Atletico have been playing in their new stadium, the Wanda Metropolitano, since the beginning of the 17-18 season.
Work to demolish the main stand will begin on November 15.
