Junctions related to the B3339

The Whitegate Roundabout was opened in the early 2000s as the western end of the Bridgwater Northern Distributor Road. While this road is ostensibly intended to provide access to the vast areas of new housing being constructed between Bridgwater and Chilton Trinity / Wembdon, it also serves as a useful connection between the A39 to Minehead and the Motorway.

The roundabout itself is quite small, with the A39 Quantock Road running east-west through it. As this road has been slightly diverted to meet the roundabout, there is a stub access to properties to the south. To the north, there are two arms, one entering a small housing estate which slightly predates the roundabout, and the other is the realigned B3339 to Wembdon.

The construction of the roundabout was delayed for some time as the field through which the realigned B3339 runs was a popular local amenity, and there were protests against taking the road through it. In the end, however, the lack of any real alternative to this protected route saw the road constructed anyway.
