Six Dials is a well known local junction in Southampton.


As its name suggests, it was originally a six-way crossroads, where the A335 met the A3024. In the 1940s, as the tramways started to be removed, it became a small roundabout.

Big changes came in the 1960s. Much of the area in the north-west corner of the junction was demolished, so a large new gyratory was created, taking in the new Kingsway, an improved New Road and St Andrews Road. The gyratory then used part of the existing Trinity Street, Brinton's Road and St Mark's Road, before meeting St Mary's Street at the site of the original junction. In the middle was a car park and some of the houses from St Mary's Road and St Mark's Terrace.

With the A3024 being upgraded in the 1980s, the junction soon changed again. This time the present layout was created, with the dual carriageway being taken through the middle of the old gyratory, and the other streets adjusting to meet it.
