A30, B3311

Branwell Lane is the most eastern roundabout of the Penzance Primary Distributor Road, which acts as a bypass for the town. It is also the main access to the town to a large majority of traffic, and marks the last point at which the A30 is a Dual Carriageway. It experiences delays at peak times for traffic from both the Penzance PDR and the old route into the town due to its low capacity, being a small roundabout. It is also very busy in holiday season, as holiday traffic from Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole from the B3311, West Cornwall on the A30 and commuter traffic from all directions meet here.

Originally built with the Penzance PDR in 1989, it was modified slightly in 1991 to account for the widened A30 to the east of the junction when that became a Dual Carriageway between Branwell Lane & Chy-An-Mor.

There is a segregated left turn from the A30 westbound to Penzance which merges with traffic from the roundabout, and from the A30 Penzance PDR to the unclassified road to the north of the junction where it gives way, which leads to the village of Gulval and the industrial park along Jelbert Way.

The name of the roundabout is referred to by the local authority in official documentation[1]; it is also referred to as Ponsandane Roundabout in the same document.
