Bowden Roundabout is junctions 7 and 8 of the M56.

Junction 7 of the M56 produces a spur that leads to this junction. Junction 8 is simply the on slip from the A556, a little bit south of the roundabout, to the M56.

Originally this was just a T-junction between the A56 and the A556. When the M56 to the east was built, it was converted into a roundabout. It opened in 1972, with the M56 to the west opening in 1974. The junction was modified in 2017 as part of the upgrading of the A556.
