M54 link to M6 Toll

A new route to connect the M54, which currently only has south-facing access to the M6, to the M6 Toll slightly to the north. The route will be paid for by the M6 Toll concessionaires. Sadly, considering this will be a link between three motorways, early signs are that it will not be a motorway itself.
The road will be free to use, though obviously traffic joining the M6 Toll will be subject to the toll charges.
