Ballycullen Interchange was a major interchange planned in Dublin. It was officially adopted as a proposal in 1974, as a link between the Western Cross Route and the Southern Cross Route.

In the late 1970s, there was talk that it could be a four-way interchange, with a local access included too.

Even when the Southern Cross Route was initially watered down, there was talk about how a temporary single carriageway new road could make use of one of the junctions of the slip road. In the event, the plan to extend the Southern Cross Route to Saggart was abandoned, and the motorway was realigned and built as one road.

No confirmed layout for the interchange has been found, but a trumpet interchange would have fit the pattern at the time. By the time the M50 actually opened, had the interchange still been planned, a roundabout would have been more likely.
