JUNCTIONS
CLOCKWISE
  • There is a traffic light controlled exit to and access from GREAT BRICKKILN STREET.
ANTICLOCKWISE
  • There is an exit to SALOP STREET.
  • There is an access from the South Street Car Park (opposite GREAT BRICKKILN STREET).

OF NOTE
The central reservation is unusual in this section as it is used as a car park. This means that it looks quite different from all the other "green" sections. It is accessible via a ramp (at the Northern end of PEEL STREET) that passes underneath the anticlockwise carriageway.
