Apologies for using MS Paint! I reckon the main traffic flow here is Birmingham-Oxford, so here's how adding a couple of slip roads could ease the pain. Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Sep 14, 2005 by rusty

Fingers crossed you'll get in the correct lane. In my opinion this is possibly the most confusing sign on the motorway network.

Gantry replacement on M40

There's a right mess here. Just one panel from the old gantry remains but the signs on the new gantry are obscured by the old one. Also, both revolving panels on the new gantry are displaying M6.

Taken from the former B4462 roadbridge is this westerly view of the Junction 14 westbound on slip where it rises up from the A452 roundabout then crosses over the motorway before falling to join it. There is a camera post just off shot to the right.

Queue on slip road at M40 J10

J10 on a normal day. On a bad day the queue can stretch back to the M40 mainline with severe delays as a result. Notice how the driver of the lorry decided to rejoin the main carriageway at the last minute.

This is the North Birmingham facing sliproad joining the M40 that was painless.

Aston Hill 1

You can reach this point by walking along the old alignment of the Christmas Common road (see map) from the south (not from the north as the map would suggest is easy to drive to). Incidentally you might have seen this scene before even if you haven't been here - a flyover of the motorway at this point is part of the opening titles of The Vicar of Dibley, which is filmed in Hambleden about 6-7 miles away.
