Duncanston Crossroads is a comparatively new junction, completed in the 1980s when the new A9 was built across the Black Isle between the Kessock Bridge and Cromarty Bridge. Prior to that, the B9169 continued unobstructed on a straighter route which has now been returned to farmland. The junction is a staggered crossroads built to minimise the risk of accidents, with a pair of right turn lanes in the centre of the A9. Each arm of the B9169 is also provided with short deceleration / acceleration lanes for left turning traffic, so vehicles crossing the A9 spend very little time in the main carriageway, as they quickly join these filter lanes having turned right out of the B9169.

The eastern arm of the B9169 has been realigned to the south to provide the stagger, while the western arm still follows the original line, more or less. The only change on this side of the main road is the new junction with the lane down to the B9163 at Urquhart, which was severed by the new A9, and so curled alongside the new road to the new junction on the B9169.
