Wade Bridge Junction is at the southern end of the A889, one of the last stetches of Wades Military Roads in use as a primary route, where it terminates on the A9. The junction is surprisingly busy, not just with through traffic, but also as the main access to the small village of Dalwhinnie from the A9.

Currently a simple give-way T-junction, with a right turn filter lane in the centre of the A9, the dualling plans show a new junction, with full access, further north including a bridge or underpass and a new road heading west off the A9 into Dalwhinnie. When the road is dualled the existing right turn junction will be closed off and the southern section of the A889 will probably only be used by local access traffic and cyclists.

The junction takes its name from the old stone arch bridge built by General Wade across the River Truim nearby. This bridge has long since been bypassed by a new bridge on the A889, which is the former route of the A9 and this junction was only built in 1975 when the Dalwhinnie bypass section was completed.
