The roundabout from New Row

The Longannet Roundabout was built in conjunction with the Kincardine Eastern Link Road, which diverted the A985 to the south of Kincardine to connect with the north end of the Kincardine Bridge. It was completed in 2004. The roundabout links the A985 to the A977 and the unclassified road leading to Longannet Power Station and the coast road through Culross. It has four arms, with each of the A roads having two lanes on the approaches. In addition, the A985 has S2+1 overtaking lanes in either direction leading away from the roundabout.


The roundabout replaces a T Junction at the New Row steadings, where the Longannet road met the A985 at a short stretch of dual-carriageway, barely quarter of a mile in length. The roundabout is sited south of the previous junction, and access to New Row is now from the A977 only. Before the roundabout opened, traffic from the A985 for the Kincardine Bridge had to continue into the centre of Kincardine, and then turn on to the A876, Northern Approach Road, which was cut through the old town centre around the time that the bridge opened in 1935.
