Rose Street Roundabout is the junction of the A82 and Rose Street, Inverness. Its primary purpose seems to be to provide access to the city centre car parks, the bus and railway stations and the new retail development at the former Safeway Store. However, it is still a busy junction, with plenty of turning traffic. It was constructed as part of the city centre relief road, which gained the A82 number, in the mid 1980s. This project saw a new bridge, Friars Bridge, across the River Ness, and localised demolition of houses, particularly on this site.

The roundabout is a simple 3 arm junction with the A82 passing from west to north east, and Rose Street turning off to the south east. There is also a left turn slip lane into Rose Street. Barely a cars length into Rose Street, a mini roundabout separates left turning traffic, for the Bus and Train Station, and their car parks, from right turning traffic for the Multi Storey and retail park. On the opposite side of the roundabout, a substantial screen wall helps separate the road from the houses beyond, which sit lower. The end of the street was demolished to make way for the roundabout.
