The Amwell Roundabout is a roundabout between Ware and Hoddesdon on the A414. Historically, there was a crossroads to the northern end of the roundabout where the A10 crossed the A414.

With the construction of the new A10 in the 1970s, the existing A10 became the A1170, and an access to the new dual carriageway was provided from the Hailey Interchange on the A10 mainline to a newly constructed roundabout at this location.

The A414 between here and Hertford (via the Rush Green Interchange) was then reclassified as the B1502, with A414 traffic from Hertford signed via a multiplex with the A10 to reach this point.

Finally, in the 1990s the A414 Stanstead Abbott's Bypass was constructed, which tied a new dual carriageway route in the direction of Harlow into the junction. The old course of the A414 was then renumbered as the B181
