Today Allander Toll is a roundabout, although this is a relatively modern arrangement. In the past it was a staggered crossroads with a single bridge across the Allander Water, while today there are two such bridges.

History

The A807 passes through the junction from North West to North East, although old maps suggest that in the past this may have been a TOTSO, as the NW arm of the A807 seems to flow naturally into the A879 that arrives from the south. The A879 then crosses the River Allander, and immediately meets the B8049 which joins from the south west. The old route of the B8049 is now part of the Allander Way / Kelvin Walkway into Glasgow City Centre, as the road has been diverted across a new bridge to meet the roundabout on the north bank of the river.

Bridges

The A879 bridge over the Allander Water.

Both the A879 and B8049 cross the river on modern concrete bridges. However, it appears that they were not built at the same time as the Allander Way has to cross the B8049 on the level, while a walkway is provided under the A879 bridge. This may be a cost saving on the B-road, but it is still heavily trafficked and the two bridges do differ in appearance.
