Masterton Interchange is junction 2 of the M90. It was previously signed as the Pitreavie Interchange, although it has always been referred to as the Masterton Interchange in official documents.
The junction was part built in the 1960s in anticipation of the East Fife Regional Road. All the bridges required for the additional slip roads were built to facilitate an easy completion of the junction. The decision to build the East Fife Regional Road on a more northerly alignment meant the junction has remained incomplete ever since.
Proposals for the Forth Replacement Crossing were made in the 2000s with various options for the tie in to the existing M90. In 2009 one of these involved removing the short weaving section between this junction and Admiralty Junction. The north facing slip roads at Admiralty Junction would be closed and a link would be provided from the A921 to a much improved Masterton Junction. This option wasn't proceeded with although the southbound hard shoulder through the junction was converted to a bus lane as part of the Forth Crossing works. Other than this the junction remains today as it did when first built over fifty years ago.
