|M5 (J8), M50|
The Strensham Interchange is junction 8 of the M5, linking to the M50. For the M5, it is a standard roundabout interchange, whilst it is a flat roundabout for the M50, of which it is also the terminus. The southbound exit for Strensham Services also feeds into this roundabout, merging with the off-slip from the M5.
The end of the M50 was originally a trumpet interchange, but when the M5 was widened in the area, the junction was changed into a flat roundabout, eliminating the tightness of the trumpet. Aerial photography shows a field immediately to the east of the roundabout that has the shape of the original trumpet interchange.
There were also plans to redesign the junction in the 1970s to allow for the Strensham - Solihull Motorway.
