This article is about the junction known as Five Ways in Mill Hill, London.
For junctions in other locations called Five Ways, see Five Ways

Fiveways Interchange is where the Barnet bypass and Watford bypass met at the southern end of their shared section through Mill Hill. These bypasses have carried several different road numbers, but since the 1950s have been A1 and A41 respectively. The M1 has its junction 2 here.

The southbound temporary route, years later
The M1 had a temporary terminus just north of here from 1967, forming a fork on Watford Way just north of the roundabout. The final junction opened in stages finishing in 1977, with all sorts of different access arrangements for northbound traffic, using the flyover that still exists, and the temporary terminus' access to the northbound M1 (a simple gap-in-fence roadway)[1]

The southbound temporary route used the disused rail alignment passing under Watford Way alongside Bunns Lane. The disused sliproad was occasionally used post-77 as a temporary exit when the M1 south of here to Staples Corner was closed medium-term, providing access to the A41 that the finished junction layout that fully opened in 1977 doesn't. This sliproad was recently (2010s) fenced off, but before, if you knew where it was, you could walk along it and end up right next to the M1 southbound carriageway (with a crash barrier between you and the motorway).
