The A40 originally crossed the area on a causeway and met the A417 at a T Junction.
The A40 was dualled in the early 1970's and was rerouted slightly onto a new causeway and met the A417 at a new T Junction.
The bypass was eventually built with roundabouts so Over Roundabout was born. Unlike the earlier design for an interchange, the roundabout allows traffic from all directions to use the bypass. The existing westbound carriageway of the A40 where it rounds the curve was retained as a filter lane to avoid the roundabout. The same curve would also have been utilised as a slip road in the earlier grade separated design.
