M6 motorway at junction 4a southbound
M6 motorway at junction 4a southbound
The critical decision point for southbound traffic for the London area. Along the M6 and M1 or the later M42/M40 route. Alternatively, get in lane for the M42 northbound. When first opened, this junction was a simple slip road to the M42 from the 3-lane M6, splitting into two around the corner after the junction. At that time the M40's extension to London remained to be completed, so the M42 was of largely local significance.
