Three sides of the junction were already there before the Wessex Way was built. There was even a bus station on the eastern side. A western side to the junction was built in the 1960s, at which point the large houses in the middle were turned into offices. A new exit was provided to the north, which was used by Wessex Way when it opened.
The County Gates (and County Gates Lodge) were positioned in the north-east corner of the junction. The name refers to the traditional boundary between Hampshire and Dorset.
