Full freeflow design

Stoke Heath Interchange was the planned connection between the Coventry North-South Motorway, Coventry East-West Motorway and the Walsgrave Link Road. Three layouts for the junction are known. The earliest consists of a large triangular shaped trumpet allowing freeflow movements to and from the East-West Motorway. A roundabout in the northeast corner of the junction allows limited access to the Walsgrave Link Road. In 1971 a full freeflow design on at least three levels was drawn up which seems rather extravagant given its location. It appears nowhere else other than on one map.

Later design

By 1974 a much more reasonable layout was planned in the form of a grade separated roundabout along with some freeflow links to the East-West Motorway.

None of the roads the junction was intended to connect with were built but the North-South Route did eventually materialise as the A444 and a roundabout was built in the same location as Stoke Heath Interchange.
