Junctions related to the A806 (Canniesburn - Scotstoun)

The junction at Scotstoun is a complicated crossroads of sorts, squeezed under an old railway viaduct which now carries the Clydeside cycle route. The A814 passes east-west under the viaduct with 3 or 4 lanes, slightly confused by turning lanes, hatching and parking bays. Burnham Road heads south on the west side to the docks and shipbuilding yards on the Clyde, while on the east side of the viaduct Anniesland Road heads north as a very wide S2 Urban Boulevard.

The former A806 heading north

However, that is not all, as immediately to the east again, another arm of Anniesland Road meets the A814. This is the alignment of the former A806, heading north east to Anniesland Cross on the A82. As such, it is a wide dual carriageway, but with little traffic. This route can be accessed from either direction on the A814, but there is no right turn exit, with traffic being forced to head city-bound. However, the other arm of Anniesland Road does have a right turn exit at the traffic lights, so it is not difficult for traffic wishing to turn right to take this slightly longer route.
