|Junctions related to the A824|
Aberuthven Junction, sometimes officially referred to as Aberuthven (Auchterarder) Junction lies to the east of the village and is the eastern end of the Auchterarder Bypass. The A9 bypass passes to the south of the town, and the A824 has been extended along the former route of the A9 between this junction and Auchterarder Junction at the western end of the bypass.
The junction is a simple at-grade fork, where the former line of the A9 is now followed by the eastbound onlsip. All other movements are catered for at a simple T junction, with a short filter lane for left turning traffic from the A824. Right turns are via a central reservation gap in the centre of the A9, which includes a long right turn lane. Directly opposite the junction is a short access road to Maidenplain Farm, with a very short right turn lane on the eastbound carriageway of the A9, which shares the central reservation gap with A824 traffic.
As this is one of the busiesr at-grade junctions on this section of the A9, the current works further north to fully dual the route, and the closure of central reservation gaps elsewhere across Scotland will surely see calls for this junction to be improved in the future. A bridge could easily be accommodated to the east with minimal disruption to property, and so allow the central reservation gap to be closed up.
