History

The junction was built in the early 1970s as part of the Sutton Coldfield Bypass which moved the A38 away from the urban area. Provision was made for an additional arm of the roundabout to be added which would have been a bypass for Minworth and Curdworth. An underpass at the roundabout would have connected this route to the A38 from Birmingham. A strip of land to the north of Lindridge Drive shows the protected line.

BNRR plan
In 1984 there were two options for the southern section of the Birmingham Northern Relief Road. South of Bassetts Pole one route would have been an online upgrade of the Sutton Coldfield Bypass and the other route would have followed the A446. The online upgrade would have seen the Sutton Coldfield Bypass widened to a D3M motorway. There would have been north facing slip roads at an enlarged Minworth Island. The route would then have headed south to M6 J4a. By 1987 the A446 route was chosen for further investigation and this was eventually built as the M6 Toll.
