There was originally a crossroads until the current roundabout was built in the 1950s. It remains unchanged and at the time of writing still retains its streetlighting columns which appear to be nearly as old.
M54 ProposalsB5314 which joins the A5 to the east would be severed. Crackleybank Interchange. The A5 to the west would be used carry this traffic. The remaining slip roads allow access between the roundabout and B5314.
From early on the southern route for the M54 as built was favoured so it appears unlikely the motorway this far north would be built.
