Lomondgate Roundabout

Barloan Toll in Dumbarton has been an important junction on the road West from Glasgow for over 70 years. Until recently, it was just a simple roundabout, but in 2009 a second roundabout (Lomondgate) opened half a mile to the west.

Barloan Toll Roundabout

The Roundabout at Barloan Toll marks the end of the Dumbarton Bypass and the start of the Alexandria Bypass, which was built many years later. The Dumbarton Bypass was the westernmost and last section of the Great Western Road improvement started in the mid-1920s. The Alexandria Bypass is about 50 years newer!

Up until 2009 the roundabout was the junction between the dualled A82, the B830 into Dumbarton town centre, and the A813 (ex A82) into Alexandria. However, in 2008 a new roundabout, Lomondgate Roundabout, was constructed just under half a mile to the west, with the A813 diverted to that junction the ex A813 (ex A82!) is now an unclassified cul-de-sac serving the Bellsmyre Estate.
