Elmbridge Court Roundabout is a roundabout junction found between Cheltenham and Gloucester on the Gloucester Northern Bypass. An A417 spur links the A417 mainline to the northern bypass at this roundabout. The roundabout was built in early 1970's when the M5 was extended to Bristol. The B4063 was the original route between the towns.

Elmbridge is a district of Gloucester after which the roundabout was named.

In August 2016 work has begun on the roundabout to create a road through the middle for the westbound A40.

History

Original plan for the junction
County Council's alternative design
The Gloucester Northern Bypass was planned to have grade separated junctions. The roundabout would have been enlarged into an oval shape and the A40 would have bypassed it. The A40 was still a Trunk Road and was maintained by the Ministry of Transport.

Gloucestershire County Council proposed an alternative design which would have altered the route of the B4063 by having it pass over the junction and severing the west facing connection to the roundabout. One can assume this is designed to deter traffic using the B4063 to gain access to the city. The B4063 to the east still has access to the roundabout. The B4063 flyover joins this connection via an east facing only merge along with single lane dualling to stop traffic U-turning to reach Gloucester.
