Headington Roundabout is one of the busiest junctions on the Oxford Ring Road.

It is built where London Road crossed Green Road, which headed south-east. In the south-west corner was the built-up area of Headington. The Northern Bypass was built in the 1930s, and plugged into the same junction, which became a small roundabout. A few years later the north-west corner was developed, with a LAR called North Way. The residential area of Risinghurst was built around the same time, but space was left along Green Road for it to become a dual carriageway.

In the 1950s, a residential area was developed around Bayswater Road, and a much larger roundabout was built here. Little demolition was required as space had been left for it.

Green Road then became part of the A4142 Oxford Eastern Bypass, as far as the Kiln Lane junction. London Road and the Northern Bypass were both later upgraded to dual carriageway and traffic levels continued to increase.

The junction was eventually signalised, and received a major upgrade in the mid-2000s when filter lanes and a 'hamburger' through-section were added.
