Lost Destination: Spaghetti Junction
Covering a 30-acre area of Birmingham, the Gravelly Hill Interchange (nicknamed Spaghetti Junction) opened in May 1972 and consists of 559 columns, 13,000 tonnes of steel and 134,000 m3 of concrete. Once one of the busiest stretches of motorways in Europe, it still carries over 200,000 motorists each day and costs £7 million per year to maintain.
Part of our Lost Destination series of prints which takes inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century. They celebrate the unique but often forgotten beauty of buildings that in their heyday were destinations in their own right, but have since been either immersed in the everyday or demolished.
