M6 interchange, view east (see all photos of the same view)

The completed M6/M65 interchange is enormous in scale. It's carrying light traffic here, but the M65 is not actually open yet - these vehicles are travelling between the M6 and the A6, a route that now involves passing around the new roundabout.
