Description:Alternative design for Elmbridge Court Roundabout as proposed by the County Council in 1972. This differs from the Ministry of Transport's design by having the A40 passing beneath the bridges and the B4063 avoiding the roundabout. There is no connection between the roundabout and the B4063 towards Gloucester. This appears to be designed to stop traffic using the B4063 to gain access to the centre of Gloucester. The B4063 to the east has access to the roundabout which joins the flyover at a merge consisting of single lane dualling. This could be a measure to prevent traffic U-turning to head towards Gloucester and vice versa.
