Birmingham has some of the busiest roads in the country, and it is not just the motorways that run through and round it. There are major roads all over the countries second city and it is inevitable that sometimes a road accident in Birmingham will happen.
Of course there is the famous Spaghetti Junction, the first to be given this nickname by a journalist reporting on its construction. The nickname has now been used for junctions all over the world, and in fact is used for another one in the north of England.
The journalist likened it to a plate of spaghetti in 1965 when it was planned, and the 2 motorways, 2 A roads, 2 railway lines, 2 rivers and 3 canals that are all part of it explain why.
The junction is just outside the city centre through which there are expressways, underpasses, overpasses, islands and one way systems galore and for anyone that does not know the Birmingham City Centre it can be a nightmare and is sometimes the cause of a road accident in Birmingham.
