Greenwood Interchange is the junction of the A71 and the B7080 near Dreghorn.

The A71 runs from Edinburgh to Irvine.

The B7080 runs from the Irvine bypass to Shewalton.

The junction was built with just three slip roads offering a limited amount of freeflowing turns. In around 2000 the junction was rebuilt as a dumbbell allowing all turns to be made. Signs on the B7080 just to the north approaching Newmoor Roundabout installed before the junction was rebuilt still show the direction to Kilmarnock requiring traffic to turn back at the roundabout to access the A71. For some reason a loop was never built in the northwest corner of the original junction.
