B969

Coul Roundabout is a junction in Glenrothes. It is currently a standard roundabout but bigger plans were proposed as part of the new town. The B969 would have been a dual carriageway called the Western Freeway and the junction would have been grade separated. Three designs are known: a roundabout interchange, diamond and folded diamond. The folded diamond was chosen.

Layout of the folded diamond

The plan was to construct the Western Freeway as a single carriageway with space for a second carriageway and the junction as a T-Junction serving Huntsman Road. This would be a temporary layout until the second carriageway was added along with Pitcairn Avenue. The whole junction would then be replaced by the folded diamond. This of course never happened as plans for the new town were scaled back so the temporary layout has remained permanent apart from the T-Junction becoming a roundabout when Pitcairn Avenue was built.
