Broadway Roundabout is junction 1 of the M1.

The underpass, flooded

Originally planned to be a temporary junction waiting for the Belfast Urban Motorway to provide a more fitting terminus for a major motorway than a roundabout with some unclassified roads, it opened on the 10th of July 1962. In 1981 the Westlink was added to the roundabout, cementing its permanence as a motorway junction. It was grade-separated with an underpass in the late '00s.

In the middle of the junction sits a massive artwork by Wolfgang Buttress, called RISE[1].
