Croft Interchange is junction 21A of the M6 and junction 10 of the M62.

Croft Interchange dates from the construction of the Liverpool-Manchester section of the M62 in the early 1970s. Its layout obviously suggests that it was designed in the expectation that the most important turning movements would be M6(S)<->M62(W), but in practice M6(S)<->M62(E) proved heaviest. Originally the slip roads from the eastbound and westbound M62 to the southbound M6 merged with each other before merging with the mainline, but this was changed when the M6 was widened southwards from here to the M56 in the 1990s.

Croft is a very similar layout to Denham and Winnersh Interchanges, with variations in size and orientation, except that at Croft one left-turn slip road is on the inside.
