Forge Interchange is located at M54 junction 5, where it forms the main access from the motorway to Telford town centre.

It was not included in the original planning phase of M54, but was added in 1983 at the request of the New Town Development Corporation, who also paid for its construction. It replaced a half-diamond junction a short way to the east.
