Dechmont Interchange forms Junction 3 of the M8 and lies between Uphall and Livingston on the A899. The junction is an unusual modified trumpet design, with three of the four sliproads from the motorway meeting the Livingston East Roundabout, which forms the main interchange part of the junction.

The westbound onslip is the only normal trumpet type sliproad, feeding straight from the roundabout onto the motorway. A similar sliproad exists for the westbound offslip, but this forks to also provide a direct link onto the A899 south into Livingston. The Eastbound onslip forks off the northern arm of the A899 after it has crossed the motorway, but the eastbound offslip takes a larger curve, crossing over the A899 and M8 on separate bridges to feed directly onto the roundabout.
