A8, A90, A702

West End Junction is at the western end of Princes Street, Edinburgh. It is where the A90 begins, and used to be where the A700 ended, but that has recently been renumbered A702.

The A90 doesn't actually reach the A8 any more, as the Edinburgh tram line has stopped up the end of it. What was once a fairly simple crossroads has its function now performed by a mess of one-way systems, banned turns and trams, buses, taxis & cycles only links. The A8 route is now restricted access either side of the junction.

Southbound traffic (having passed through the 'Local access only' signs disuading you from heading to the area) is sent via Queensferry St, Hope St, Charlotte Square, South Charlotte St, Princes St and Lothian Road, while northbound traffic cannot use Hope St, so access to the A90 from the A702 must be done avoiding this area, however access to the east-west route along Queen Street is possible from Lothian Road. Signs with 'All traffic' on them direct you around the junction.
