The United Kingdom's M64 motorway was planned during the 1970s to link the M6 at Stoke-on-Trent with the M1 near Castle Donington, by way of Uttoxeter and Derby.Its purpose would have been to allow traffic travelling from the south-east to the north-west to avoid the busy M6 around Birmingham. It was cancelled in 1976.During the 1990s, the A50 between Stoke and Derby was upgraded to dual carriageway instead, following roughly the same route as the middle section of the M64. However, instead of terminating on the M6, the new dual carriageway terminated deep inside the urban area of Stoke on the A500, and at the eastern end, it terminated on the M1 further north than originally planned.Meanwhile, the M6 Toll motorway was built to ease traffic congestion north of Birmingham.

  • Autostrada M64 (ang. M64 motorway) – niewybudowana autostrada w Wielkiej Brytanii, planowana w latach 70. jako połączenie w Stoke-on-Trent z M1 niedaleko Castle Donington. Gdyby powstała, umożliwiłaby przejazd z regionu południowo-wschodniej Anglii do północno-zachodniej, z pominięciem obciążonej M6 w rejonie Birmingham. Plany zbudowania trasy zostały anulowane w 1976 roku. W latach 90. zbudowano , biegnącą mniej więcej po śladzie dawniej planowanej arterii, później powstała także autostrada M6 Toll zbierająca część ruchu w Birmingham. M64 miała mieć około 64,4 km (40 mil) długości.
