|Three Level Stacked Roundabout|
This junction connects the M18 and the A1(M) Doncaster Bypass. The junction is a large three-level stacked roundabout, with a free flow link from the M18 northbound to A1(M) northbound.
Since the signage of THE NORTH has been directed up the M18 and A1(M), this junction has become busier, although it is by no means under-capacity for its job. At busy times, traffic can build up on the slip roads, particularly for the popular movement of A1(M) south to M18 south. You will also notice that the A1(M) south and the M18 north become much quieter after this junction and the M18 also has a lane drop.
The junction opened on 21 December 1967 as the original northern end of the M18. The M18 terminated here until December 1978, when the final section of M18 was opened to complete the link from M1 to M62.
