Craigend Interchange

A surprisingly complex motorway intersection, the Craigend Interchange lies 2 miles (3 km) south of the centre of Perth in Perth & Kinross. Opened in 1978 at a cost of £5.4 million, it was designed by the engineering company Babtie, Shaw & Morton and built by Whatlings Construction. The M90 divides here, with a northwestern section continuing for 2½ miles (4 km) as part of the Perth bypass before it meets the A9 at Broxden roundabout and an eastern section, of half that distance, which crosses the Friarton Bridge and becomes the A90. At this junction the motorway is also intertwined around the A912 road, the old Edinburgh Road, which forms the southern approach to Perth. As part of the interchange, this road is connected to the southern section of the M90 only. The settlement of Craigend lies a quarter-mile (0.4 km) southwest of the junction, while the Moncrieffe Railway Tunnel cuts beneath the western section of the intersection, its route evidenced by a line of three airshafts.
