The A95 and A939 multiplex briefly around the south of Grantown and over the New Speybridge. This junction is the southern end of that multiplex, where the A939 turns off to head south along one of the old military roads built in the mid 18th century. It is a simple give-way T Junction, and seems to have always been so, although the alignment is somewhat different these days.
While the road that is now the A939 is still exactly where it was 250 years ago, the A95 has been re-aligned in the last 50 years to provide a faster, smoother line. The old road still exists, as access to houses, and connects with the Old Speybridge, showing that the road from here to the new Speybridge has been changed more than once. The modern A95 line partially follows the old railway line, through the former Grantown-on-Spey (East) Station site. Previously, the A95 had to cross this railway on a bridge immediately before the A939 diverged.
