Motorway linking the M6, Wolverhampton and Telford to North and Mid Wales. The Wellington Bypass section was originally allocated the number A5(M) before becoming M54 prior to opening.

The M54 is notoriously dull. In order to improve the environmental impact of the motorway, it is almost entirely within cutting between junctions 2 and 5 and so it is very easy to become disoriented. Junction 5 was originally to the east of its present location, and was a half-diamond junction with A5. This was moved to the present location when the motorway was extended eastwards, and paid for by the Telford New Town Development Corporation in order to give better access to the Town Centre.

Main Article: Telford services

Telford services opened in 2003, and are located a short distance away from junction 4 along A464. During the planning phase, the MSA was known as Shifnal services as it was outside the Telford town boundary. It is a small single-site MSA operated by Welcome Break.
