Bridge Roundabout (Dundee)
|Location Map ( geo)|
Bridge Roundabout is the small roundabout at the junction of A991 South Marketgait and South Victoria Dock Road.
The 1966 bridge junction was a free-flowing trumpet: South Marketgait had a lane gain where the loop from the bridge joined, with a corresponding lane drop at the Commercial Street exit. When the Bridge Roundabout was opened to improve access to the Victoria Dock area, the free-flow exit from the bridge onto eastbound South Marketgait was transferred to a right-angle junction - left turn only with Give Way - slightly further west. The third eastbound lane under the bridge was removed, but the lane between the bridge and the Commerical Street exit was retained. (Commercial Street used to be the start of the A929 route north through the city centre, but declassified when North Marketgait was completed.)
The Bridge Roundabout is being removed as part of the Dundee Waterfront project - see Riverside Junction.
