|Hockley Heath, Warwickshire|
The Umberslade Interchange is the final junction, junction 16, of the M40 and junction 3A of the M42. Despite the layout of the junction, the M40 has priority, with traffic wishing to remain on the M42 having to turn off.
All approaches to the junction are controlled by Variable Speed Limits and the northern arm of the M42 utilises full Active Traffic Management. The junction is susceptible to congestion at peak periods due to inadequate capacity through and beyond the junction.
If it had been built, the Strensham - Solihull Motorway would have terminated at this junction.
