Andy Street – 2022 Comments on 50th Anniversary of Spaghetti Junction

The comments made by Andy Street, the Mayor of the West Midlands, on 24 May 2022.

Spaghetti Junction has become an iconic Brummie landmark so it’s only right that we celebrate its 50th anniversary.

At the time of its inception, it was actually considered a real engineering feat. So much so that my grandfather used to take me to visit whilst it was being built.

Over the years, it has played an important role in enabling goods, people and business to flow in and out of the region and will no doubt continue to do so for many years to come – not least in the year we play host to the Commonwealth Games.
