The M69 is a motorway in Leicestershire and Warwickshire, England connecting Leicester and Coventry, completed in 1977. This 15.7 mile (25.3 km) long road is a dual three lane dual carriageway, but carries a relatively low level of traffic. It is used to provide a shorter route from the M6 eastbound and the M1 northbound and vice versa by avoiding Junction 19 on the M1 which, until the construction of the A14 in the early-1990s, provided access to the southbound carriageway only. It was built to relieve the A46 road. [http://www.iht.org/motorway/m69coveleic.htm The Motorway Archive - M69] ]

Route

Starting at the northeastern suburbs of Coventry at junction 2 of the M6, the motorway crosses the Coventry Canal and then continues northeast past Bulkington and west of Wolvey before turning more easterly to run south of Hinckley. It then crosses the Birmingham to Peterborough railway line before ending on the southwestern edge of Leicester.

Junctions

:"Note: M69 runs south-westerly / north-easterly for the entire route."
