|Roundabout Interchange with Traffic Lights|
Burtonwood Roundabout is junction 8 of the M62.
When it was constructed in 2003, links to Burtonwood Road to the north and south were built, along with Charon Way to the south-east and Limekiln Roundabout to the north. Provision was made for Skyline Way to the west, which was added later.
In 2017 work on the roundabout commenced to move the exit of Charon Way onto a signal controlled junction on Burtonwood Road. At the same time additional stacking space was added to the approaches to the roundabout and also additional traffic lanes to the circulatory carriageway. That year, OS Mapping began showing 3 A-roads at the junction: the A5280 (Skyline Drive), A5281 (Burtonwood Road to the south) and A5282 (Charon Way).
