Junctions related to the M42

Bickenhall Interchange, is a stacked roundabout between the M42 (junction 6) and A45 near to Birmingham Airport and the N.E.C.

The layout of the junction is unusual as the western side of the roundabout passes over the A45, while the eastern side passes under it. The only other junction to do this is the M4/A470 junction near to Cardiff.

Despite the elaborate appearance of the junction, the A45 is the only road here that pre-dates the M42. Additional sliproads were added in the 1990s.
