Navigation Roundabout is a roundabout on the A41 Black Country Spine Road between West Bromwich and Wednesbury in the small town of Great Bridge. The area is rumoured to be the geographic centre of the BCN (Birmingham Canal Navigations) - hence the name of the roundabout.

The roundabout marks the southernmost point of the multiplex between the A41 Wolverhampton to West Bromwich road, and the A461 Walsall to Dudley road.

The junction is constructed on top of the trackbed of the former Great Western Railway branch between Dudley and West Bromwich, whilst the A461 immediately to the west of the junction is on the site of the former Great Bridge South railway station.

History

Original design for Navigation Roundabout

This junction, like all the others on the Black Country Spine Road, was to be grade separated when the road was planned in the late 1980s. Rising costs meant economies had to be made and by the early 1990s the design had changed and the junctions were all built without grade separation.
