The Junction Site is a room in the Dark Agon Wastes. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Like its Light Aether counterpart, Mining Station Access, Junction Site features a hidden expansion. However, unlike Mining Station Access, the expansion is hidden underneath the sphere through which Samus crosses in her Morph Ball tunnel, and it is not covered by a destructible brick. Samus will need to come back with the Spider Ball to roll up a track and activate a Bomb Slot, which will rotate the circular structure to allow Samus to access the Missile Expansion. She can then reset it to continue forth. The only sort of life in this room are groups of Bladepods at either end of the tunnel.
