Ford Roundabout' is a roundabout in the center of Arundel. The A27 heads east to west through it, while the A284 joines from the north and then heads along the A27 to the east. The roundabout also provides access into to Arundel to the east and west.

It is a busy junction, as might be expected from a major road entering an urban area. It provided access to Park House, with a lodge provided at the entrance, and Ford Road running to the south. Green Lane (later Canada Road) was upgraded and joined the junction, as did Torton Hill Road. With the area becoming increasingly urban, clear priority was given to the A27 Chichester Road, in favour of all the other routes.

In the 1970s the A284 bypassed Arundel to the west, and to the south, allowing the A27 to be diverted onto the new Relief Road. This was when the roundabout was built. A steep climb was needed to allow the Relief Road to cross the River.

The layout has barely changed since, as there has always been an assumption that Arundel would be given a better bypass to the south.
