Water Orton Interchange is junction 4A of the M6, and junction 8 of the M42. The junction is spread over a large area and includes several long sliproads.

In 1998 the M6 eastbound here was used to trial a tiger tail diverge. It had been estimated that as much as 50% of the traffic was leaving here, and the new layout was considered to be successful in evenly distributing the traffic and improving driver behaviour.
