Goval Junction from the B977

The Goval Junction is the northernmost of the completely new junctions on the new A90, Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route. It nominally connects the A90 with the A947, although the A947 has been re-routed through the area and relies on spurs of the B977 to reach the sliproads. It is a complex and widely spread junction, which seems more than a little illogical.

From the south, the A947 deviates from its original route soon after crossing the River Don on Parkhill Bridge. The old road is now an unclassified dead-end turning off the B977, which is met at a large signalised crossroads. Traffic to and from the west (south) bound carriageway of the new A90 must turn right here to a roundabout for the sliproads. The A947, meanwhile, continues north over the new A90 to another spacious signalised crossroads, where the old line is rejoined. The old section of the A947 is now apparently a spur of the B977 (this is uncertain), which leads down to a roundabout and so the sliproads for the east (north) bound carriageway of the A90.

The new A90 to the east (north) of this junction was the first part of the AWPR to be opened, in August 2018. A visit on a Sunday afternoon in September 2018 showed that the signals at the junctions were ill-timed for the small volume of traffic passing through, leading to lengthy waits, potentially at both parts of the junction. It is hoped that when the A90 is fully opened the traffic volumes will increase to a level which warrants these timings.
