Halton Lea Junction is a roundabout interchange along the A533 Central Expressway, and the B5155's Eastern terminus.

Its sliproads extend quite far North and South. The next junction up to the North, between it and the Bridgewater Interchange, was originally a simple signalised diamond, whose sliproads were very tight with the sliproads of its neighbouring junctions. These sliproads have since been separated, as part of the Mersey Gateway project, to run parallel with the Central Expressway, requiring its traffic to go through either Halton Lea Junction or the Bridgewater Interchange to get to the expressways. The next junction to the South is the Lodge Lane Interchange, from which sliproads emerge dedicated to the junction.

To the South of the roundabout is a long, high-arching footbridge crossing the South-Eastern sliproad and the expressway, but just missing the South-Western sliproad, where steps come down to a pelican crossing. Perhaps this was poor planning, perhaps this was intended to make traffic entering the roundabout arrive in a more tidal fashion, or perhaps something else.
