M1 J21 alternative.png
During the planning stage for the M69 several designs for the terminal junctions were considered. This was the most ambitious design for M1 J21. The design made use of the existing roundabout bridges beneath the M1. In addition the Leicester Outer Ring Road would have passed over the roundabout at the end of the former A46(M). There is one flaw in the design concerning the eastbound C/D road beneath the M1 where there is a very short weaving section immediately before the slip road to the northbound outer ring road.
M1 J21 alternative 2.png
Freeflow design for M1 J21 as part of plans for the M69 dating from around 1970. This was one of several junction layouts under consideration at the time. The layout was designed to make use the existing bridges for the roundabout beneath the M1. No links between the M69 and M1 south were provided.
M1 J21 full layout.png
Map showing the full intended layout of M1 J21 as originally planned in the early 1970s. The junction was built to allow the M69 to continue to the Leicester Outer Ring Road but it was never completed and to this date the stubs remain unused at the end of the M69. A loop was also to be built to allow southbound M1 traffic direct access to the M69.

Dominating the junction is St Margaret's Anglican Church, one of the five oldest churches in Leicester.
