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. Anyone on the M54 wanting to go northbound on the M6 would either have to leave the M54 at Junction 2, and travel up the A449 joining the M6 at Junctions 12 or 13; or leave at Junction 1 and join the M6 at Junction 11 via the A460.

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 included the addition of north-facing sliproads at this junction, which would have involved the demolition of Hilton Park services, which are located immediately to the north of this junction - however, this option was dropped following consultation.
