Chapelton Roundabout from the footbridge

Chapelton Roundabout is a small junction of the dualled A73, Cumbernauld bypass. It simply serves Chapelton Road, an unclassified route which quickly forks at a second roundabout into two routes that meander south westwards to meet the B802. There is also a small, detached, part of Condorrat accessed solely from this junction. There is also a footbridge across the A73 immediately to the south of the junction, connecting the houses to the rest of the town. Although the A73 is a dual carriageway, the south eastern approach was hatched down to a single lane in the mid 2010s. This is believed to be related to the geometry of what is a small roundabout making it difficult for two vehicles to circulate side by side in this direction.

The roundabout appears to have installed after the A73 was built, and replaced a simpler T junction a short distance to the south east, where there is still a break in the trees along the verge.
