Newdale Cross is a junction on the A5223 in Telford.


It was originally planned as a roundabout interchange called Lawley Bank Interchange connecting two major routes. These are the Western Primary and the Town Centre Link Road which were to be dual carriageways with grade separated junctions. These proposals were dropped in the mid 1970s when plans for Telford were reduced in scale.

The junction was eventually built as a roundabout called Newdale Roundabout with the Western Primary opening as the single carriageway A5223. The Town Centre Link Road became the single carriageway B5072. Both these roads were built to rural standards with the national speed limit.

In the first decade of the 21st century the area around the junction started to be developed. The A5223 was dualled online and the B5072 was dualled offline with the roundabout being replaced by the current signal controlled junction in 2009. Shops and housing now surrounds the junction and the A5223 speed limit is now 40mph and the B5072 is 30mph to reflect the urban setting.

The remains of the former roundabout in 2010
