Barns Meadow Interchange is a major junction in Northampton where the A45, A428 and A5095 meet.

History

Original plan for the junction
The junction is a result of the town's status as a new town in the 1960s. The expansion of Northampton called for a new road system of expressways to distribute traffic through the town. The original plan was for the A45 to pass just to the south of the town centre on a new alignment from Upton to Barns Meadow with a flyover above the roundabout. This was never built so instead of having traffic coming to a halt at the roundabout it was decided to build the flyover facing southwards hence why the junction looks awkward on a map.
