Carron Roundabout is a large five-arm roundabout at the northern end of the New Carron Road diversion across the River Carron to the north of Falkirk town centre. The only classified road through the junction is the B902, which runs north - south along New Carron Road. To the east, Carronshore Road leads out to the suburb of the same name, while to the west Stenhouse Road leads to Stenhousemuir. The fifth arm is the old B905 route across Carron Bridge which was replaced by New Carron Road, and is now subject to traffic calming to dissuade traffic from using it. The northern arm of the B902 and Carronshore Road are both lined with two approach lanes for turning traffic, and while all of the approaches are a similar width, the remainder only have a single lane.

The roundabout was built as part of the New Carron Road construction, improving the route between the A88 to the north and Falkirk town centre.
