Junction 3 of the A50 is known locally as the Bonnie Prince Roundabout due to the eponymous pub located just off the roundabout. It is a simple, two-level grade separated roundabout junction.

History

The A50 under the Bonnie Prince Roundabout

This junction was constructed as part of the Derby Southern Bypass, which opened on 4th September 1997. This meant a previous junction on the site, with an access to a nearby farm had to be moved slightly to the South.

Should the A50 have been built as the M64, as was planned, there would have been a junction nearby with the M64 Derby Spur. This would have meant significant differences to this junction from how it actually appears today. One potential layout of the junction, should the M64 have been built, can be seen here.

Future

One of the route options in the Swarkestone Bypass feasibility study includes the new Trent crossing & Swarkestone Bypass 'plugging into' this roundabout which would result in the roundabout gaining another exit between the A50 Westbound off-slip and the A514 arm of the junction.
