A locally major junction, where several accesses to business and retail parks cross three busy dual carriageways.

Originally it was a crossroads, with Southampton Road and Segensworth Road both offering routes to Fareham. Little Park Farm Road only served its namesake farm.

By the 1960s, it had become a wide curve for A27 through traffic, with the option of turning off into the two minor roads.

With the arrival of the motorway, that junction was abandoned and the A27 was diverted onto a new dual carriageway, passing to the east, serving a large roundabout. This roundabout had six exits, serving: the old junction, the two ends of Southampton Road, the two local roads and the new motorway link road. Usage of the junction was expected to be low, although Locks Heath and Titchfield Park were urbanising fast under Fareham's development plan.

A new exit was then provided for Barnes Wallis Road, and this and Little Park Farm Road became used by business parks and industrial units. The old junction became surrounded by housing but its old layout can still be made out by the wide grass verges.

The roundabout was widened and signalised in 2009, at which time two of the roads became one-way to reduce the complexity of the junction. It is still very busy.

Since the construction of Whiteley in the 1990s, there has been an aspiration to link Whiteley to the A3051, allowing that road to avoid Park Gate. In the 2000s all of the road signs were replaced with 'A3051' added but painted out. The paint eventually faded and the signs had to be permanently amended. In 2013 that permanent connection was provided, but the renumbering did not happen.
