Lying at the eastern end of the short A9 / A803 multiplex, Rosebank Roundabout sits on the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal between Camelon and Falkirk. The junction marks the point where the A9 diverts from its historic route into the town centre - now followed by the A803, and turns northeast to take a loop around the north of the town, partially using old railway lines. The roundabout therefore lies to the north of the original A9 line, and the old road is now partially grassed and crossed by the entrance to a hotel, so remains within the road curtilage.

The resulting 4 arm roundabout is aligned to give priority to the A9 / A803 multiplex and A9 ring road, with the A803 into the town centre essentially forming the T of a T junction. All approaches and exits are wide enough for two vehicles, although all but the A803 are quickly reduced to single lanes, and that despite the multiplex being dualled - it has mostly been reduced to D1 with parking bays and turning lanes.

B816 Mini Roundabout

The A803 almost immediately crosses the canal on its way into Falkirk town centre, and on the east bank it meets the B816 at a mini roundabout. The road between the two is S4 to allow for turning lanes, but the onward A803 and B816 are both single carriageway. In order to successfully accommodate the bridge over the canal, without needing a Moving Bridge, a new lock was built to the south of the road to replace one to the north, which remains partially intact albeit with the gates removed and the channel deepend between the two.
