Gaol Square is a large roundabout at the north end of the Stafford Inner Relief Road which opened in 1978.


There are 3 roundabout lanes on the north and east side, 2 on the south and west side plus 2 exit lanes for both A34 exits and the A5187 (which is signed as the A518). The B5066 exit has 1 lane. There is also access onto the pedestrianised Gaolgate Street at the south side.


The junction in 1952

Before the Relief Road it was a six exit square where B5066 Gaol Road from the north-east met the south-north A34 between Gaolgate Street and Foregate Street, as it passed through the town. The other roads were unclassified. On the west side was Bull Hill and Mount Street. Back Walls North came in from the south-east.

The junction took its current form with the opening of the Inner Relief Road with the official opening on 12 June 1978.
