Thurso St. (Wick)

Georgmas Junction lies a little to the north of the railway junction after which it is named. This is where the Far North line splits between branches to Wick and Thurso, and the road does the same, although unlike with the railway, there is a more direct route south from Wick, via the A99. The junction is a T junction, where the A9 approaches from the south, and TOTSOs left to continue to Thurso. To the right, the A882 heads east to Wick, and seems to be busier than the southern arm of the A9, although as the road connects the two main towns in Caithness this perhaps shouldn't be a surprise.

The junction is a simple give way junction with a wide right turn lane in the centre of the northern arm of the A9. Whilst traffic flows are generally so low that this is hardly needed, the presence of the Orkney ferry at Scrabster near Thurso sees substantial peaks in the flows after each ferry arrival, and so the turning lane becomes very useful 3 or 4 times each day.
