A dangerous merge situation on the A1(M) motorway just south of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne where the entrance ramp from the southbound Washington service plaza crosses the exit ramp for junction 64.  Traffic exiting the plaza and wishing to continuing south on the A1(M) must come to a complete stop to cross the exit lanes which continue to travel at motorway speeds.  Photo taken from a pedestrian overpass between the service plazas on each side of the motorway.
