The Tinsley Interchange forms Junction 34 of the M1. Built in 1968, it is one of the bigger junctions in Britain. It is also very busy as this is the junction for Meadowhall. The two roundabouts (Meadowhall Roundabout to the north, Tinsley Roundabout to the south) are fairly standard though the bottom one is busier due to it having four roads.

The two halves of the junction are divided by the impressive Tinsley Viaduct. The viaduct gives great views of Sheffield and the surrounding areas. At 3am on the 24 August 2008, this junction lost its main landmark, the Tinsley Cooling towers which were a major indicator for travelers to see how far they were from their destination.
