|Junctions related to the B6166|
Winthorpe Interchange is an important junction on the A1 Newark bypass. The A17 has its northeastern end here and the A46 passes through and Newark services and the B6166 (old A46 into Newark) also are served by the junction.
The two dumbbell roundabouts are also individually named, with the western one being called the Brownhills Roundabout, and the eastern one being the Friendly Farmer Roundabout.
The junction was built with the A1 Newark bypass, which opened in 1964, with the A46 through the junction being dualled at the same time. The A46 to the west and A17 to the east came later, opening in 1990. Over time therefore the level of traffic using the junction has grown and now regularly exceeds the available capacity, particularly with regard to turning movements.
