SPAGHETTI JUNCTION MAP


Spaghetti Junction map in cable knitting.


Designed and knitted by Ben Ashforth.


The Gravelly Hill interchange, junction 6 of the M6 motorway, was constructed between 1968 and 1972 and immediately acquired the nickname “spaghetti junction” because of the complicated, looping appearance of its 4 km of slip roads. The roads are supported on a total of 559 columns, with several rivers, canals and railways underneath.

This cable knit map of Spaghetti Junction is a successor to Cable Tube Map. Unlike Cable Tube Map, it has gradual sweeping curves and in a few places, the cables run parallel to the rows of knitting, which I didn’t think was possible when I made Cable Tube Map.


Each column of cable knitting represents one lane of traffic, giving this depiction of the junction a scale of approximately 1000:1.
