The roundabout almost hidden in the landscape

Maidencoates Roundabout, previously known as Duneatonfoot Junction, lies close to where Duneaton Water flows into the River Clyde. It is the southern end of the A73, where it meets the A702, which is now the more important route as it connects the motorway at Abington to Edinburgh. The current roundabout was built in 2004 to replace an old fork junction, and consists of three arms, each with single approach and departure lanes. The northern arm of the A702 and the A73 run almost parallel for several miles to the north, although the A702 quickly crosses the Clyde, putting the routes on opposite sides of the river.

A notice inviting tenders to build a roundabout here had previously appeared in the early or middle 1990s but the work did not go ahead then, for unknown reasons. Duneatonfoot is about one mile NE of A74(M)/M74 J13 at Abington. The stretch of A702 between the two junctions was signed as the A73, a useless multiplex, until the M74 was extended south to Abington in 1991.
