A92, B999

Murcar Roundabout is the junction between the A92 and the B999 which lies on the northern edge of the Aberdeen urban area at Bridge of Don. It is a simple 4-arm roundabout junction with the A92 passing through from south to north and the B999 heading west, while an unclassified road leading to a developing business park heads east. None of the approaches gain lanes for turning traffic, and while the circulatory lane is more than wide enough for two lanes, it is not lined.

History

Originally, this junction was a simple T junction, with the driveway to Berryhill Farm leading off a short distance to the south, as indeed it still does albeit closed up by the new road. Mapping evidence suggests that the A92 was dualled here in the early 1960s, providing an at-grade central reservation gap for right turning traffic. The current roundabout came much later, probably to improve traffic flows and safety, as the B999 became a very busy route prior to the opening of the new A90, AWPR in 2018, as it bypassed many of the traffic problems in Aberdeen.
