M50 Junction 3, Linton Interchange
M50 Junction 3, Linton Interchange
This is the southern slip road heading towards Ross-on-Wye and on to South Wales. See also SO6626 : M50 Junction 3, Linton Interchange.
This junction is cited as being one of the worst layouts in the whole UK network.
"Quite aside from the fact that there's really no need for it to be there, it's shockingly below standard for a motorway. There are no sliproads or deceleration lanes to speak of, simply very very tight bends which end abruptly a few feet from the motorway at Give Way signs. There isn't even any traffic island between the entry and exit points just a painted triangle on the carriageway. And to verify that this junction truly is abysmal, the signs on the M50 in advance of the junction aren't the normal fork ones but instead show the exit leaving at 90 degrees from the motorway which it does!"
