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

The M6 interchange is partly open to traffic at this point, though the M65 is still a few days away from its inauguration. This is because the new roundabout forms the link between the A6 roundabout, out of shot behind the camera, and the M6 in the distance.
