This article is about the current junction 1 of the M42.

.

The Harvester Island (also referred to as the Forest Island or Lickey End Interchange) is junction 1 of the M42 with the A38 to the north of Bromsgrove in Worcestershire. The junction takes it's name from the pub on the southern side of the roundabout, and less frequently from the local village.

The junction is limited access, with only east facing sliproads due to the proximity of the M5/M42 interchange at Catshill. The roundabout had traffic signals added to the A38 and M42 approaches in the early 2000s, while access from the B4091 in either direction is unsignalised.

Temporary Terminus

For a year, over the winter of 1986/87, this formed the temporary western terminus of the M42, with traffic having to use the A38 to complete the final mile to the M5 at Lydiate Ash. While a link to the M5 south was completed in 1987, traffic for the M5 north still had to exit at this junction until a northern connection was added in 1989.
