Loop Farm Roundabout is to the north of Oxford and lies close to the Peartree Interchange, where the A34 and A44 intersect. The roundabout itself is a junction between the A44 and the A4260.


History

The completion of the M40 to Birmingham in the early 1990s had a profound effect on the major roads in the area. This required a new section of A34 to be built from Peartree Interchange to connect to the new motorway junction at Wendlebury. The existing A43 from Peartree to Kidlington was downgraded and renumbered as A4260 and this new roundabout was built immediately to the north of Peartree Interchange.

Within a couple of years of the opening of Loop Farm Roundabout there were plans to replace the A40 where it runs through the northern suburbs of Oxford with a new road. It would have met the A44 at a new grade separated junction and would have resulted in the newly built Loop Farm Roundabout being flattened. The southern half of the A4260 would have been moved onto a new alignment. The replacement A40 never happened and the existing roundabout survives to this day.
