The Essington Interchange is junction 10A of the M6 motorway, and is located to the northeast of Wolverhampton.

It was opened in 1983, and is the eastern terminus of the M54. There is no access to or from the M6 to the north of the junction due to the presence of Hilton Park services immediately to the north.

Its primary function is to allow access to main motorway network from the northern side of Wolverhampton, as well as from the former New Town of Telford and the rest of Shropshire and mid-Wales beyond.

Both B4156 and A462 pass through the junction area, but neither of them interchange with the motorway network at this location.

One of the options for the proposed M54 - M6 Toll Link Road includes the addition of north-facing sliproads at this junction, which would involve the demolition of Hilton Park services, which are located immediately to the north of this junction.
