Description:Start of the A74

The A74 has always started here. In pre M6 days, it was at grade with the A7 (the worst single figure A road on the British mainland. It doesn't have a motorway sister & worse no parrallell railway.) Now it starts once traffic from Carlisle meets the M6. By 2010, all this would have gone & been replaced with M6. J44 itself doesn't need any work. It already D3M so once the the works are completed, it would have been futureproofed for 31 years. Yikes! This marks the start of the Cumberland Gap, a naff D2 road.
