A8
Kingston Roundabout stands on the south bank of the River Clyde

Kingston Roundabout lies on the A8 in the west end of Port Glasgow, virtually on the south bank of the River Clyde. It takes its name from the Kingston Shipyard which stood here until the 1990s. One of the old shipyard slipways can be seen from the roundabout at low tide.

It was built as a four arm roundabout when the A8 dual carriageway was realigned in 2007 to make way for the retail and housing developments on the site of the former Kingston and Glen shipyards. Two arms served the A8, one served the (as yet unbuilt) retail park and the other served the new housing developments west of the A8. This was the second major realignment of this stretch of the A8 since the early 1970s when the town centre was by-passed.
