The Portway roundabout can be considered as part of the Lawrence Weston Interchange, in that it is one of the termini of the spur from the M5 that leads into Avonmouth. It takes its name from the fact that it also lies at the western end of the Portway, the grand riverside route that was opened in the mid 1920s to better connect Bristol with its port. Today, in addition to the motorway, the B4054 also terminates on the A4 here. Motorway traffic using this roundabout is primarily using the Portway in and out of Bristol, with Avonmouth better served by St Brendans Roundabout a little to the north, which is the other terminus of the motorway spur.
