A9, B9141

Dunning Junction lies a couple of miles north of the pretty village from which it takes its name, but it is the shortest route between Dunning and the A9. The junction is a staggered crossroads, with the B9141 from Dunning approaching from the south, and the unclassified road over Dalreoch Bridge to the scattered community of Findo Gask continuing north. As the A9 is dualled throughout this section of its route, right turns are permitted via two central reservation gaps, with the right turn lanes in the centre of the A9 facing each other. Both turnings also have left filter lanes off of the A9, but there is little provision for traffic turning out of the side roads.

Whilst this is by no means the busiest of the at-grade junctions on this section of the A9, the current works further north to fully dual the route, and the closure of central reservation gaps elsewhere across Scotland will surely see calls for this junction to be improved in the future. Despite the close proximity of property, a bridge over the A9 could probably be constructed to the southwest of the junction, using a section of the old A9 to connect up on the north side.

Prior to the dualling of the A9, the route ran a little to the north of its current line, and this old road still survives. The old junction therefore lies a few metres off the modern road, and is a simple T junction surrounded by properties, where the B9141 met the A9 at a give way T junction. The A9 then crossed Dalreoch Bridge and met a second junction, almost half a mile from the first, for the unclassified road to Findo Gask.
