Deeside Junction is the new junction connecting the A93 with the A90 Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route. Due to space constraints where the two routes cross, there is no direct junction, with a lengthy spur running parallel to the new road to the north instead and connecting with a modified trumpet junction. The spur is signed as (A93) and identified on some mapping as a spur of the B979 rather than the A93, although the correct classification is not currently certain.

The spur leaves the A93 at a signalised crossroads, opposite the re-aligned B979 which heads south over Maryculter Bridge. It then heads north, along the west side of the new dual carriageway to a roundabout approximately half a mile away. From here, a bridge carries the sliproads for the southbound carriageway over the new A90, and they curve round in a traditional Trumpet layout. However, the northbound sliproads both curve away to the north of the roundabout, mirroring the southbound slips, with the A90 offslip turning through 180 degrees.
