M5-A38 link

This is one I've wondered about for a long time. The M5 replaced the A38 as the main road from the South West to the Midlands but it was never properly joined up with the A38 North when it got to B'ham. To my mind, this is one reason for the excess pressure on certain bits of motorway. The obvious thing to do would be to continue the M5 (perhaps as an A road - I don't know what number it could be given) straight up around Barr Beacon and across to the A38 at Wall. Was this ever planned or suggested? Dadge C Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Apr 23, 2005 by M4Simon
