Chequerbent Roundabout is a junction just to the south of M61 J5. It was built with provision for future grade separation which was never carried out.
In the early 1990s the A5225 was planned to connect to this junction. The existing roundabout would have been replaced with a new one around 30 metres to the northeast. A new link road would leave the northeast corner of the roundabout and join the A58 north of the M61. This would allow some traffic to avoid Junction 5 and enable it to handle increased traffic the A5225 would bring. There is some confusion regarding the north facing slip roads shown in grey. Only one map shows them whereas they are omitted in the rest of the documentation. Without them traffic from the roundabout using the M61 would have to use the new link road and access Junction 5 from the north.
The A5225 scheme was dropped in 1996 and there are presently no plans for new roads at Chequerbent.
