It is considered an important cultural, economic, and transport city and the West Midlands Built Up Area has a population of nearly 2.5 million people. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, Birmingham was a mid-sized market town but grew considerably in prominence thanks to its science, technology, and industrial efforts during the 18th Century. It has six universities making it the largest centre of higher education outside the city of London.
Birmingham has a central location, and this has seen it become one of the biggest transport hubs for canal, rail, and road transport. Its concentration of business, retail, commercial, and industrial sites as well as its location en route to many other areas of the country mean that its transport networks are usually very busy. Birmingham Airport is the seventh busiest in the country, and the third busiest outside the capital.

This junction serves 18 routes and covers a massive 30 acres of land. While most drivers try to avoid the junction, it remains extremely busy because there are various routes that must incorporate it. Construction started in 1968 and the junction was operational in May 1972.
