St Ninians Roundabout lies to the south of Stirling, and is the terminus of both the A872 and B8051, with the A9 continuing through the junction. The A9 to the north is dualled into the city centre, although this has partly been hatched down to D1, and the A872 is also briefly dualled to the south, as it heads towards the motorways and Denny. The B8051 follows the old line of the A9 towards the city centre, before turning west to form a sort of ring road as far as the A811, so connecting also to the A84. The other arm of the A9 heads east initially, before turning south east on its way to Falkirk.

The roundabout is a oval shape, with the main axis running southwest to northeast and the central island dug down to accommodate a full access subway system, eliminating the need for pedestrian crossings. All of the approaches have two turning lanes, with two spiralled circulatory lanes around most of the junction.
