|Route outline (key)|
Truncated London – Crawley Motorway. The motorway terminates at junction 7 at the northern end; it was planned to extend into London, with its terminus being on Ringway 2, the motorway replacement for the A205 South Circular Road.
The Hooley Interchange is a junction between the M23 and A23. It is also the northern terminus of the M23, although that motorway was supposed to head further north. As a result, the junction is unfinished, leaving two unused flyovers over the A23.
The Merstham Interchange is the junction between the M25 and the M23. It is one of three four-level stacks in the United Kingdom. The junction is only a mile south of the terminus of the M23, the Hooley Interchange. Consequently, very little traffic heads north from here.
