Castle Bromwich Interchange is junction 5 of the M6 serving the eastern suburbs of Birmingham. There are no west facing slip roads.

History

Early design for the junction
Early plans for the M6 showed a standard roundabout interchange with slip roads for both directions. It was realised a significant amount of commuter traffic would use the M6, particularly when the city council planned the A38(M) which would encourage traffic to use junction 6 to gain access to the city centre. As a result the junction was redesigned and only east facing slips were provided.
