The Merrals Shaw Interchange (M2 Junction 2) was first built in 1963 as a partial-cloverleaf junction. This and the next junction were always busy due to the M2 being the Medway Towns bypass. In the early 2000s, the junction was upgraded into the modern junction. It can deal with more traffic as it is now D2 and the roundabouts spread out the traffic. The upgrade also involved two more bridges that were constructed over the river Medway, one to carry the widened carriagway of the M2, the other for the CTRL.
