|Junctions related to the A902|
Blackhall Roundabout lies within the City of Edinburgh and is the junction of the A90 (Queensferry Road), the A902 (Telford Road) and Strachan Road. It hence provides the main route from the west to Leith, Granton, and much of north Edinburgh. It was always known as the Kwik-Fit Junction, however the Kwik-Fit in question is now a Farmer Autocare. The junction is a notable landmark on the way into Edinburgh, mainly due to the clock and thermometer on the front of the Farmer Autocare.
Telford Road has seen various numbering changes, but the basic layout has remained constant. The junction has been signalised for at least 40 years, and is notable by Edinburgh standards for the large number of lanes and complexity of crossing it on foot. Despite this, there are a range of local shops and more recently a mosque, dotted around the top of Strachan Road, the north side of Queensferry Road, and in the block between Telford Road and Queensferry Road. The A90 has a 40 mph limit to the west, but both it and Telford Road are now 30 to the east, so it marks the point where the A90 changes from a heavily-trafficked S4 arterial road with few property frontages to a city street of variable width with numerous shops and closely-packed housing.
