This used to be D2 NSL but the speed limit has been cut to 60 and many junctions are now D1. Worst still the bridge is designed to take D3 should the need arise.

This didn't attract many votes last month, so I thought I'd crop it, resubmit it, and see if it attracts any more votes...

1970 Telford Plan.jpg
This map shows what was originally planned for Telford based on a diagram from around 1970.

The GSJ layouts are all accurate although whether some junctions had underpasses vs flyovers is unclear due to the low resolution of the original diagram. Note that M54 J5 is not shown. The present J5 is the second junction to bear that number. The original J5 was located to the east of the present junction and had west facing slips only. To improved access to the town centre this junction was closed and a full access junction was built slightly to the west. The plan I've seen for the new town doesn't show either J5. Whether this is an error I don't know but as a result I haven't shown either J5 on the map. As J4 was to have an east facing freeflow and J6 was to have additional grade separated in the north-south direction I assume these junctions would have been able to handle all M54 to town centre traffic.

I've shown roads as dual carriageways if they were built with room for a second carriageway or if they contain GSJ's. Other roads are shown as single carriageway. This may not necessarily be correct.

I've taken liberties with the road numbering as the present numbers are based on the unfinished road network that current exists. I've rerouted the A442 along the western side of the primary ring. The northern side of the ring is A518. I've left the eastern side blank as I've no indication what the likely number would be. The A464 is now extended westwards to Lawley along the central corridor.

Bridge over the M54 (C) Nigel Chadwick

The M54 is a 23 mile east-west motorway in Shropshire and Staffordshire. It is a two-lane dual carriageway for the majority of its length, with sections of three-lane.
The M54 spur connects the M6 motorway near Essington, Staffordshire with the A5 trunk road at Wellington, Shropshire. The motorway forms part of the route to North Wales, roughly following the path of the Roman Watling Street and the A5 north-westwards, towards the port of Holyhead.

The track is both National Cycle Network Route 45, and the Severn Way, along this section. And a running route to boot.
