Broomknowes Roundabout lies at the southern end of the Maybole Bypass on the A77 and opened on 31st January 2022. The old alignment of the A77 through Maybole was lazily renumbered as the B77, and turns off to the right. It is therefore a three arm roundabout, where all four approaches have two lanes for turning traffic, and the northern arm of the A77 also has two lanes onto the bypass, to provide a climbing lane up the gentle hill away from the junction. Rather curiously, the junction could have had a fourth arm to connect to the farm roads to the west of the roundabout. However, for some reason it was decided to connect these to the B77, and then pass them under the bypass immediately to the north of the roundabout. Even stranger is that the road through this underpass appears to have a fence along the middle making it a sort of dual carriageway!
