Chichley Hill Roundabout is a roundabout on the Newport Pagnell bypass.

History

Original proposal in blue

In the original plans for the Newport Pagnell bypass from the early 1970's, this junction was planned to be a fork junction with the bypass taking a closer line to the town and passing Sherington to the west. However the road was built further east as a single carriageway with room to upgrade at a later date. The fork was replaced in the plans with two roundabouts, staggered, so that the junction could form a dumbbell if and when the A509 was upgraded. When the road to the south was dualled, the two roundabouts were turned into one, and a flare added to allow grade separation if the road to the north was upgraded.

An earlier proposal from 1969 shows a slightly different layout for the junction in the form of a symmetric Y.
