Bury is a medium sized town in the traditional county of Lancashire, and part of the Greater Manchester conurbation.

1960s proposal in blue compared to the present ring road in green

In 1961 plans were made for a ring road encircling three sides of the town centre. The main feature is a three way freeflow junction which caused concern about its cost. This led to discussions about an alternative layout as a grade separated roundabout favouring east-west movements. The section to the east of this junction was to have Special Road status to prevent unsuitable traffic using it although blue signs and the associated 70mph speed limit were not part of the scheme.

The ring road was built in the 1970s but to a different design to the original proposals. It was a complete ring and the junctions were roundabouts without any grade separation. All the junctions were replaced with traffic lights so none of the roundabouts remain.
