The Calvine Junction is a rather typical T Junction but it has an unusual construction history. The precise chronology is not completely clear, so the following may not be completely accurate. However, it is our current best guess. Historically the Modern A9 was constructed from Calvine to the Drumcohter summit, which opened in 1979. The new A9 joined up with the old, where evidence can be found on the ground with a large stretch of tarmac. This remained in place until late 1983 when the A9 was built north of Calvine, completing the current layout. Historic Mapping on the ground can be a little sketchy of the whole situation.

Originally when the Calvine bypass was constructed there was no junction here, the A9 simply passed by while the B847 connected to the old road to Dalnamein. By the 1989 OS map the layout was still the same but a link road has been constructed joining the A9 to the B847. A little while later and before the 2001 OS edition, the current layout had appeared. This was possibly done for the introduction of the NCN7 cycle route.

The junction itself that exists today is a T junction, with a deceleration lane for left turning traffic off the A9, and also a long central right turning lane on the A9. The B847 almost immediately turns to run loosely parallel to the new road through the small village, with the cycle track taking a slightly circuitous route through the scrub on the right.

The future for this junction is that it will be closed off when the A9 is dualled and large junction constructed for the B847 to Blair Atholl and Bruar. The final layout has not yet been announced but it is likely it will return to its original layout.
