The Old Street Roundabout is one of London's busiest roundabouts. In the 2010s it was converted into a series of signal controlled junctions

The junction started out as a crossroads between Old Street and City Road. In 1969 the large, diamond-shaped, roundabout was built, requiring several buildings to be demolished. Old Street railway station was one of many buildings which had to be demolished; it is now in the middle of the road.

The junction has been known as Silicon Roundabout due to various Tech firms being based there.
