Hampson Green Roundabout, the M6's Junction 33, at Galgate in Lancashire, forms the original southern end of the Lancaster Bypass (opened April 1960). The original configuration of the junction was a 'temporary bend' made from a lesser quality road material that was easier to replace in 1964 as part of the works to link the Lancaster and Preston bypasses together.

The bridge over the railway, and the rough alignment of the northbound onslip, are part of the original bypass.

The trumpet junction of today is known for the rather short weaving length between the motorway and A6 roundabout - it can be particularly hairy at peak hours.
