Sackville Street Junction
Main Article: Sackville Street Junction
Sackville Street Junction, where the motorway meets the A34 and the University, is an oddity. It is infamous for its unfinished sliproad which ends in mid-air pointing menacingly at Upper Brook Street which is one-way in the opposite direction.
