Priorslee Interchange

Priorslee Interchange was a former junction on M54, located to the east of the present junction 5 in Telford, Shropshire. During the period it was open, it held the junction number of 5.

It was constructed along with the Wellington Bypass section of the motorway in 1975, forming the eastern terminus for the motorway at that time, and closed when the motorway was extended to Wolverhampton. It was intended to be a permanent junction, but was replaced by the present junction 5 at the request of the New Town Development Corporation in order to allow improved access to the planned town centre.

The location of the junction can be seen easily today. The ground still rises on the northern side of the motorway along the line of the old sliproad, whilst the main carriageway width changes from the originally planned D3M to the later construction of D2M, with the hard shoulders between the eastern end of the original construction under the A5 bridge and the current junction 5 being double-width.
