The Tay Bridge Roundabout lies at the south eastern end of the Tay Road Bridge, and provides the last turning point for vehicles before crossing the bridge. The roundabout has a number of warning signs installed to try and prevent unsuitable traffic from crossing the bridge, particularly in high winds, and the exit to the bridge is also equipped with automatic barriers and wig-wag signs as a last deterrent!

The only other reason for this roundabouts existence is to connect the B946 through Newport on Tay and Tayport to the A92, and so gain quick and easy access to the Tay Road Bridge. The link between the two routes was built when the bridge opened, as indeed was this entire section of A92. Previously the A92 had descended into Newport to reach the ferry to Dundee.

In the centre of the roundabout is a large concrete monument, presumably commemorating the opening of the bridge. Immediately to the north east of the roundabout is a car park, with cafe and viewpoint across the Tay. This also provides access to the cycle track/walkway across the bridge, and there is a barricaded road which drops down under the bridge to the access doors for maintenance.
