Hadley Park Roundabout is a junction in Telford. It was originally planned as a major GSJ connecting the A442 and A518. A variety of different layouts are known to exist from the late 1960s to 1974. Some early plans show a trumpet and there would have been no junction at Trench Lock. This was soon changed to a roundabout interchange with the grade separation favouring movements between A442 west and A518. This layout remained the proposal until 1972.

In 1972 a study was undertaken to overcome fears of ratrunning caused by diverting the A518 onto such a northerly alignment. The existing proposals would increase the distance for traffic travelling between A442 south and A518 east. Drivers would be attracted onto local roads through Trench and Donnington. Six proposals for the road network in the area were produced and the recommended option was to build the new A518 further south to join the A442 at Trench Lock. This then left the junction at Hadley Park to serve local roads and the grade separation would now face south to west.

In 1974 a plan shows a west facing fork interchange serving a road northwards towards the village of Horton.

Shortly after this the plans for Telford were scaled back. The A442 at this point was built as a single carriageway and the junction was a roundabout located in the same place as the recommended option in 1972.
