Windygates is a roundabout junction that marks the end of the A911 and A916. The only 'through' route on this 4-arm junction therefore is the A915, which doesn't seem to know whether it is primary or not - advance signs and RCS are all green, but the Flag Signs on the roundabout are now white. The A911 terminates from the west and the A916 from the north, which means that the A915 turns from south to east, although as the roundabout lies to the east of the original meeting point in Windygates village, all of the approaches have been turned and twisted to some extent, so that the A915 actually passes from south to northeast.

The old junction lay a short distance to the west in the village itself and remains as a signal-controlled crossroads. Today, however, the only classified road at the crossroads is the A916, which approaches from the north and then turns sharply to the east onto the former A915 line to meet the new roundabout. The southern arm of the former A915 route is now a dead end, cut by the new route of the A911, the two parts of station road connected only by a Foot bridge. The former A911 route to the west eventually meets the modern line at the western end of the bypass.
