|M40 Junction 12|
|Location Map ( geo)|
Junction 12 of the M40 serves Gaydon.
The junction was originally planned in the 1970s to a design almost identical of that when it opened in 1991. The only difference being the northern side of the junction where the priority favours movements between the B4451 and the southbound M40. This was changed so the B4451 ran uninterrupted in the final design.
In 2016 the junction was altered to increase capacity. The slip road serving the southbound M40 was lengthened and traffic signals were provided at the end of both slip roads. The bridge over the M40 was remarked as S2+1 and this necessitated narrowing the pavements on both sides.

- The M40 Motorway (Junction 12 Improvements) Scheme 2014 - This Scheme gives special road and trunk road status to two new slip roads, each about 0.3 kilometres in length, to be provided from the existing southbound carriageway of the M40 motorway to the signal controlled junction which the Secretary of State proposes to construct at the intersection with the B4451 (Gaydon Road).
