Trench Lock Interchange is a junction in Telford. It was originally to be called Trench Lodge Interchange but the name changed before construction began. In common with other junctions in new towns the layout evolved over time. Early proposals show a trumpet to the north of the railway line. This quickly changed to a roundabout interchange. In 1972 six options were compared. The top three designs have the A518 meeting the A442 at this junction. The bottom three have the A518 joining at Hadley Park Roundabout. The top left design was the recommended option and this is the closest in design to what was built. However, by the time the junction was built the A518 had been downgraded to a single carriageway and the large roundabout become two smaller ones. Provision for the flyover remained although it's unlikely to ever be built.
