Dunton Interchange is where the M42, M6 Toll, A446 and A4097 meet. It is junction T1 of the M6 Toll and junction 8A and junction 9 of the M42.

History

Prior to the M42 there was a smaller roundabout here which replaced a previous crossroads. The arrival of the M42 increased its size dramatically. Traffic signals were later added and the number of lanes on the roundabout was increased when the M6 Toll was built.

Plan of proposed services
During the design stage for the M42 four possible locations for service areas were under consideration. One of these was a site on the southeast corner of the roundabout. However a site at junction 10 proved better and the services were eventually built there.
