Lancaster Circus is at the north east end of the former Birmingham Inner Ring Road. For a junction in such an urban context it is impressive that it is a three level roundabout with the A34 passing underneath in a tunnel and the A38 on a flyover above.
What is less impressive is how James Watt Queensway to the south suddenly stops where it used to become Masshouse Circus and turns into a 20 mph bus mall. It remains unclear if the A34 underpass will remain as it is now redundant following the loss of the east side of the ring.
