Stivichall Interchange (also known as Festival Island) is a grade separated junction on the A45 Coventry Bypass, where it meets the A46 Kenilworth Bypass.

The junction was built with the A46 in the 1970s. Until then, both sides of Howes Lane met the A45 with a staggered crossroads arrangement.

The stacked roundabout is an unusual layout, because it prioritised the A46 running into Coventry city centre. This was because it was designed to accommodate the Coventry North-South Motorway, which would have provided a faster route towards the M6.

Space was left for another exit in the south-east corner. This wasn't used, and it became cut off by a filter lane provided in the early 2000s. At the same time, the A46 southbound was reduced from three lanes to two.
