Low Wood Junction is junction 4A of the M80 and is the main exit for traffic from Glasgow or England to Cumbernauld. It was built in the early or middle 1960s but its layout required no fundamental change when the A80 was upgraded to M80, completed in 2011. However two minor slip roads were removed: one from B802 North Road, Condorrat, to the main Glasgow-Cumbernauld slip road, and one from Condorrat Ring Road to the main Cumbernauld-Glasgow slip road. The latter removed slip road was particularly unnecessary in view of the nearby left-turn slip road that forms part of the Condorrat trumpet juntion with the A8011.
