Context

This file, like many in HLG 159, contains just two sheets of paper. One is the map, as promised, and the other is a short covering note explaining that the map is a diagrammatic representation of the M11/M12/M15 junction, which we knew from the title.

The map itself is an A4 photocopy of a pencil sketch, in which the layout of the junction matches everything we already knew. However, it helpfully extends a little way in each direction and so it helpfully shows us:

  • Waterworks Corner was built as planned for Ringway 2;
  • M15 would indeed continue through the junction, though how far it would go to the west is unclear;
  • The first junction eastwards on the M12 (with the A123) would have been a standard roundabout interchange;
  • Junction diagrams are not present for the M15 down to the A13, though the diagram does indicate that the A124 junction might have been north-facing only.
