The Forgan Roundabout opened as part of the A92 Newport on Tay Bypass, with the opening of the Tay Road Bridge. It provides a direct connection around the town to the Tay Bridge Roundabout, from where the A92 crosses the bridge to Dundee. The old route of the A92 into Newport on Tay is now the B995.

The dualled A92 heading north

However, that is only part of the story. Prior to the opening of the Tay Road Bridge, the A92 approached Newport along what is now the A914, the two routes having been swapped as they cross Fife. This means that both arms of the A92 from Forgan were built in the 1960s to create a direct route to the new bridge, the new A92 to the west diverging from the old A914 near the former St Fort Station above Wormit. However, the modern A914 is still a busy route, as it provides the main link from St Andrews to Dundee, and it is because both routes provide northbound traffic that the A92 becomes a dual carriageway from this junction north and over the bridge.
