A90

The new junction at Glendoick, as with its near neighbour Kinfauns Junction has been built in recent years to reduce the number of junctions on the A90 between Perth and Dundee, and also remove right turn movements. The junction is almost identical in design to Kinfauns, again being built to the east of the roads that it is designed to serve, with a single overbridge and curving slips on the eastern side of the bridge. Intiguingly, however, the road is lined so that all traffic has to give way. The approach is forced to give way to an S2 road which crosses the bridge, linking the two sets of sliproads. If traffic leaving the A90 fails to turn into this road, it will simply find itself back on the dual carriageway, facing the opposite direction!

The new junction replaces two former junctions. Heading west down the new link road, we first meet the road from Kilspindie. The next section of the road is actually the former A90, which was retained as a parallel access road to serve Glendoick Garden Centre amongst other properties. Beyond the car park, fresh tarmac indicates where an old driveway has been upgraded to provide an S2 link to the rest of Glendoick village and the side road which zigzags up the hill to the north. The new access road curves round to continue into this old road, with a turning to the dead end which used to be the junction with the A90.
