Redbridge Roundabout is a grade-separated roundabout in East London.

It was first built in the 1970s along with the M15 (signed M11) to provide a terminus for the new motorway, which formed what is now the north-facing sliproads of the A406. The M15 was downgraded in 1987 when it was renumbered A406 and the road south was extended to the A13, finishing the junction. When the A406 opened, the roundabout became much busier.

The shape of the western side of the roundabout is based loosely on the alignment of the junction of Redbridge Lane and Wanstead Lane. Redbridge Lane had a row of houses along it which had to be demolished for the new roundabout, but the new road did manage to avoid the Old Red House Pub, Redbridge station, and the station's air shaft.

This area of London is known as Redbridge, a name popularised by the nearby tube station. It actually refers to Red Bridge, where the original route of the A12 crossed the River Roding.
