Wedges Mills Interchange is junction T8 on M6 Toll, and is located south of Cannock, Staffordshire. It was opened in 2003 along with the remainder of M6 Toll, and the junction was also part of an offline upgrade to A460. The original line of A460 is located to the east of the junction, and A4601 was extended south of A5 to meet this junction.

In 2010, the dedicated left turn lane avoiding the roundabout between A460 towards Churchbridge and A460 towards Wolverhampton was closed, and all traffic was diverted to use the roundabout.
