Ferry Road Junction

|Location Map ( geo)|
Ferry Road is the former alignment of the B808 south from Byres Road on the west side of Glasgow. As such, there used to be an at-grade Roundabout here to connect it with the A814 Clydeside Expressway. However, with the increase in traffic levels, and the redevelopment of Glasgow's riverside, the junction became a bottleneck. As the B808 had long since been re-aligned to meet the A814 further west, the roundabout has now been replaced with a new flyover providing a city-bound on slip, while a west-bound offslip also connects to Castlebank Street immediately before the Kelvinhaugh Bridge. West facing slips are not provided, and Ferry Road itself has been blocked off, forcing traffic to access the Expressway elsewhere.
The sliproads meet at a traffic light controlled junction from where the new Stobcross Road heads east towards the city centre, and Castlebank Street heads west to the B808. Both routes run parallel to the A814, Stobcross Road being S2 and Castlebank Street is S4. Curiously, provision is made for performing effective U turns between Stobcross Road and the city bound A814, and vice-versa. The junction also provides access to the Riverside Museum, the new home of the Glasgow Transport Museum.
