Lodge Lane Interchange is a grade separated interchange where the A533 and A5126 join.

The interchange as originally constructed

The junction was originally constructed as a trumpet, with the A553 having priority through the junction, linking the southern and central expressways. The project to construct a new crossing of the Mersey to replace the Silver Jubilee Bridge brought with it changes to the strategic routes through the town. It was decided that rather than joining the M56 at a new Junction 11A, the existing Junction 12 would be modified to serve as an access for the new bridge. It was therefore deemed necessary to demolish the trumpet to cater for increased traffic flows from the Weston Link to the Central Expressway. This was built in 2015-17as a modified grade-separated fork interchange, and the movement from the Weston Link to the Southern Expressway was lost as a result - this movement is now catered for by traffic having to perform a U turn at Halton Lea Junction
