Woodend Junction lies at the northern end of the B8020, where it terminates on the A904. Although it has always been a Staggered Crossroads, the actual layout was changed substantially in the early 1960s. The A904 originally has a nasty double bend here, with the current cut off built to the north to avoid it. The old line of the A904 remains as the property accesses, with a new house built at the western end, while the junction with the B8020 has been moved north. The current line of the B8020 appears to be a new road built with the 'bypass', the old A904 line now being, in part, the road past the houses - the turning head at the top perhaps showing the original width. The unclassified Abercorn Road to the north remains unchanged.
