The Fortune of War is a limited access junction on the Southend Arterial Road. Originally, when the junction opened in the mid 1920s, the junction was known as Laindon Crossroads. A pub was built at the junction in 1925, called the "Fortune of War" - the junction quickly became known after the pub name.


It was originally a roundabout but was modified to allow left in left out only.
