Glimerton Junction is a limited access junction on the City of Edinburgh Bypass. It serves to remove traffic from Sheriffhall Roundabout. It connects the A720 Edinburgh bypass with the A772, which runs from Liberton to Gilmerton Road Roundabout (and hence the A7), but the junction is restricted traffic can only enter or leave the bypass going to or coming from the west.

Before the bypass existed, Gilmerton Road ran through here, past a mix of farms and coal mines.
