It may well be that these vast concrete intersections are the most important monuments of our urban civilisation, the twentieth century’s equivalent of the pyramids.
— JG Ballard

Every day tens of thousands of cars pass over the Junction. Seen from the air, the numerous carriageways interlace within one another, like a heart pumping out vehicles in all directions. At night, a walk underneath completely changes our perspective of the junction, drawing one into a dark underworld. Countless journeys take place all around as the traffic moves relentlessly along out of view. Designed to set traffic free to the farthest reaches of the country, the junction unites motorways making them into one single entity. For many, the junction represents ugliness, yet it is also a poignant reminder of our insatiable need to travel and connect with others.
