|M6, A34, A5013|
Creswell Interchange is junction 14 of the M6.
In the early 1990s proposals were made to widen the M6 to D4M using the parallel widening method. This would have resulted in the existing junction being closed and a new junction built to the north. A new link to the A34 would be provided and the A5013 would bypass the village of Creswell.
In 1995 the scheme was reviewed to assess the potential for reducing the scale of the work. By 1997 the scheme was withdrawn and smaller scale proposals for widening the M6 were announced. No alterations to the junction were planned and all subsequent proposals to increase capacity on the M6 retained the existing junction.
Two business parks have since been built between the M6 and A34 and amazingly the boundary between them follows the line of the planned link road so a bypass of Creswell is still possible.
