This article is about the junction between the A4 and A46 near Bath.
For junction 1 of the A3(M), see London Road Junction (Horndean)

It's coming up for 20 years since construction started on the Batheaston Bypass, but it is still the controversy over cutting through the hills that people think of first. The London Road Junction is the main Grade separated roundabout that marks the new terminus of the A46, and where the A4 now TOTSOs with it. The roundabout sits above the main A46-A4 through route, which oddly takes traffic away from Bath, despite the A46 being the only proper link between Bath and the M4 Motorway. This makes the junction busy, and in the early years at least the new road didn't seem to improve traffic flow into Bath!

The A46 approach is down a relatively steep hill, and despite the road being a dual carriageway, the left hand lane becomes the slip up to the roundabout. The split happens under a short tunnel under Bailbrook Lane, which includes a junction, and a road which runs above the A46 for a short length. Before the split, there was a 50 limit, and speed camera. The northbound carriageway remains 2 lane throughout.
