Condorrat Junction is a Trumpet Junction on the A8011 in the new town of Cumbernauld, it is extremely close to Low Wood Junction on the M80, sliproads for the two junctions branching off of each other. It was built in the early 1970s to serve the former village of Condorrat, which has been absorbed into the new town. The junction is not shown on the 1971 OS One Inch map, but is shown on the 1974 edition. Although the junction today is a fairly standard trumpet design, with the slip roads all merging before meeting a mini roundabout on the Condorrat Ring Road, the north / westbound onslip onto the A8011 appears to be a later addition. As first depicted on the 1974 OS One Inch map, this movement is provided further west by a connection onto the A8011 / A80 onslip, shortly before these two routes merged. This sliproad was closed up in 2009 when the A80 was upgraded to be the M80, although the current steep slip at the main junction was already in place at the time, and was likely added when the link between the A8011 and B8048 was added further north at Low Wood Junction.
