Layout of the junction

Holme Slack Interchange was a planned junction on the unbuilt Eastern Primary in Preston as part of the Central Lancashire New Town in the 1970s. It would have ultimately formed a connection between the Eastern Primary and a spur to the town centre - Preston didn't become a city until 2002.

The route of the Eastern Primary between Holme Slack and M6 J31a was fixed and detailed plans were drawn up by the mid-1970s. Plans for the section south of Holme Slack were never finalised before the scheme was abandoned. The junction would therefore be built serving only the northern part of the Eastern Primary and would tie into the A5085 as a temporary measure. A spur would be built serving the centre of Preston but this too wasn't studied in detail before plans were shelved.
