Tarbock Roundabout connects the M57 (junction 1) and M62 (junction 6) to the east of Liverpool.

History

Originally planned freeflow links between south and west

The junction's motorway connections were opened on 30 November 1973 with the M57 to the north terminating at the roundabout as well as the slip roads from the eastbound M62. The M62 was extended westwards underneath and the sliproads on the Liverpool side opened on 23 December 1975 for the eastbound carriageway and on 27 November 1976 for the westbound carriageway. Space was left for the M57 to continue southwards at a later date. Along with a southerly extension of the M57 there would also have been freeflow links between south and west.

The planned extension of the M57 was eventually opened on 15 April 1996 as the A5300. The original south to west freeflow links never materialised but in 2008 freeflow links were built between north and east making it possible to drive between the M57 and the rest of the motorway network uninterrupted.
