Origin

The typical Five-ways Junction has the same origin as a Crossroads, or indeed a T Junction. It is simply where 5 roads all meet at the one place (give or take). In urban situations, they have often been replaced with Roundabouts, or if space is tight they are controlled by traffic lights. However, in rural areas they can still be found with simple give way lines for the side turnings. As with Crossroads, there is no hard and fast rule as to which road gains priority, or the angles between any two arms. It is possible that there are five-way junctions where the main route turns between two neighbouring arms, leaving the remaining 3 to all turn off on the same side in quick succession.
