Tollcross is a busy junction on the A702 in Edinburgh's West End. Old maps show that most of the approaches have always been wide, but redevelopment over the years has seen the building line move back, particularly on the north side of the junction. Today, then, the A702 comes in from the south on Home Street, with the A700 coming in from the south east on Brougham Street. Turning right into the equally wide but unclassified Lauriston Place is banned from both of these routes, meaning that most traffic continues north onto Earl Grey Street which, after being the A700 for nearly a century has recently been renumbered as part of the A702. The fifth arm of the junction is the narrow West Tollcross, which is one-way away from the junction. Lauriston Place can therefore only be accessed from Earl Grey Street to the north.
