The junction as planned in 1970

Medlock Street Junction is a grade separated roundabout near the centre of Manchester. It was built as part of the A57(M) and the intention was for it to become a three level junction with the A5103 being upgraded to the Princess Parkway Motorway. Parts of the A5103 upgrade were built in the form of slip roads at the southern approach to the junction and space was provided in the centre of these slip roads for the main carriageways to pass beneath the roundabout. The roundabout itself would have been modified slightly to become hexagonal shaped. To the north of the junction there would have been a large multi storey car park roughly where the open air NCP Bridgewater Hall car park is. Access to this car park would be via direct slips to and from the A5103 and the roundabout.
