Westway Roundabout, also known locally as 'the northern roundabout', is one of only two originally-planned junctions to open on the West Cross Route. It opened in July 1970 as the part-built junction between two motorways, with the motorways being downgraded in 1998.

The planned final layout was to have the mainline M41 to run alongside the railway, and sliproads mirroring those on the south side linking that mainline to the roundabout. Stubs of these sliproads, as well as the gap for the mainline to head north, exist. The stubs off the roundabout end feet away from residential houses, at roof level.
