Approaching the roundabout from the new A956 overbridge

Cleanhill Roundabout is the controversial new junction between the A90 and A956 on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route. It is controversial because while all of the other junctions on this new bypass route have been built with some form of grade-separation, this is a flat roundabout at the point where it is anticipated there will be the majority of turning movements. It could be argued that this prevents any one movement getting priority over the others, but at the same time detractors suggest that it will just cause massive congestion like Broxden Roundabout at Perth suffers at peak times.

The roundabout is sited to the south of Cleanhill Wood, from which it takes its name, near the small village of Maryculter. The southern arm of the A90 and the A956 exit to the south and east respectively, and are sited closer together due to the expected lack of traffic turning between these two arms. The northbound A90 then heads north west, curving northwards towards the Dee bridge. All three arms are dual-carraigeways.

The Roundabout, and all three arms, opened to traffic 12/12/18.
