The Gelugor Roundabout (GPS: 5.37995, 100.30793), also called the Udini Roundabout, is a triple-tier traffic roundabout in Gelugor. It is located at the intersection between Jalan Masjid Negeri, Jalan Jelutong, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah and Jalan Tunku Kudin. This interchange has the first underpass in Penang, and the only one on Penang Island.

Jalan Jelutong is linked to Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah by a flyover while Jalan Masjid Negeri is linked to Jalan Tunku Kudin by an underpass.

The Gelugor Roundabout marks the southern boundary of the City of George Town in the 1960's. At that time, Gelugor was still regarded as countryside. Today, it has become a major suburb. Residential neighbourhoods such as Minden Heights and Batu Uban have developed south of the roundabout.

The Gelugor Roundabout is presently decoration with sculptures of flying birds. Before this, it was adorned with cylindrical structures meant to be stylized hibiscus. That hibiscus structure was a laughing stock, with many comparing them to phallic symbols.

The Gelugor Roundabout suffers from sporadic traffic jams that worsens during the evening rush hour, necesitating the deployment of traffic cops to control the traffic flow.
