The M6 Toll is a bypass for the M6 through the Birmingham and Wolverhampton areas. Instead of passing through the West Midlands conurbation, it runs to the north in existing road corridors alongside the A446, A38 and A5. It was originally allocated the number A446(M), though due to its non-standard number, the number M600 is used for administrative purposes.
An extension to the route of the M6 Toll between Wolverhampton and Knutsford through Staffordshire and Cheshire has been proposed as an alternative to widening the M6.
Churchbridge is located southeast of Cannock at junction T7 where the motorway interchanges with A5, A34 and A460. It is a variant of a Magic Gyratory junction and only has east-facing sliproads for the M6 Toll.
Norton Canes services
Norton Canes services opened with M6 Toll, and is located off its own trumpet junction between the Great Wyrley toll plaza and junction T6. Perhaps surprisingly, given that travellers must pay to use the road to travel more quickly, it is very busy and popular.
