Junctions related to the A737

Roadhead Roundabout is the junction between the A737 and A760 a little over a mile east of Lochwinnoch. The A760 heads west, almost bypassing the village before crossing the hills to Largs on the Ayrshire Coast, and as such is a busy route to and from Glasgow. The A737 is also busy, as it is the main trunk route to many of the towns further south in Ayrshire. The fourth arm of the roundabout is an unclassified road which heads east up Auchengrange Hill. In the past there were quarrying operations in these hills, but little trace of them remains now. Three of the arms of the junction have two approach lanes for turning traffic, although the A760 is no longer lined as such. The minor road is of a similar width, but hatched down to a single lane. The roundabout was built in the late 1960s, partly due to the increase in quarry traffic at what was a crossroads. The old junction can still be traced immediately to the east of the roundabout, where the old line of the A737 remains largely in place as property access.
