This article is about the roundabout in Fareham.
For other junctions with this name, see Station Roundabout
.

The Station Roundabout marks the western end of Fareham's town centre bypass. With signalisation of the next two roundabouts along (Quay Street and Delme), it is seen to be the next local traffic problem and as it marks the start of a lower standard section of road, it is a traffic bottleneck.

Originally this would have been a sharply angled t-junction, and at one time it would have been the end of a tram route, known locally as West End. This can still be seen in the alignment of Station Approach, which creates safety issues for pedestrians and buses.

The A27 west of here was dualled in the 1960s, as the chance was taken to replace the narrow, arched railway viaduct which crossed the road here. The two replacement bridges, of a typical grey box design, do not run parallel as they meet Fareham Station at different platforms to the previous layout, with the chance having been taken to reduce the radius of the bend on the northbound line. The resulting dual carriageway only ran between two junctions, and as it was about a decade older than the Station Roundabout it reduced to single carriageway before the junction.

The fire station fronts on to the roundabout, meaning there are no wig wag signals.

Due to the lack of signalisation, queues can build up leaving town in the evening rush hour. There were plans to close the road to everyone but buses as part of bus rapid transit plans in the town, but these have now changed to introducing bus lanes to the A27 instead.
