Lawrence Hill Roundabout is a junction on the A4320 in the Easton area of Bristol.

History

The roundabout was built in the early 1970s as part of the first stage of the failed Outer Circuit Road, a ring road designed to urban motorway standards. The second stage would have continued the route southwards to Three Lamps Interchange and a flyover would have been built over Lawrence Hill Roundabout. Work on the second stage was suspended before construction began and the route to the south and the associated flyover were never built.

In the early 1990s a cut down route to the south was built which joins the A4 further east than the original 1970s proposals.
