At the time of the original road classification in 1922, this was the location of a crossroads between the A446 and the B4141, with the road to the east being unclassified. By 1926, the east-west route saw both halves upgraded, with the B4141 becoming the road to the east instead, and the original B4141 upgraded to A4097.
A roundabout was constructed here in the mid-1960s, which co-incided with the improvement of the A446 to the south to a dual carriageway, followed a few years later by the same improvement to the north.
During the design stage for the M42 four possible locations for service areas were under consideration. One of these was a site on the southeast corner of the roundabout. However a site at junction 10 proved better and the services were eventually built there.
