Broxden Junction


Broxden Junction

Broxden Junction is one of the busiest and most important road junctions in Scotland. It is located on the outskirts of Perth.

The roundabout is an important hub [http://www.taysidefire.gov.uk/page/Tayside_Fire_and_Rescue_Services__About_Us__Station_Locations__Station_21_86.html] of the Scottish road network, a major stop on the A9 north-south route as well as being the UK's northernmost motorway junction. All six cities in Scotland, as well as Perth, a former city, can be reached and are signposted from one of its exits.

Several bus services travel from or stop at Broxden, including a park and ride service into the city centre; it is also the central point for the Megabus coach service in Scotland.Fact|date=November 2007

Broxden is statistically the most dangerous roundabout in Scotland.Fact|date=November 2007 Interestingly, the roundabout was originally designed with the future intention of connecting the northbound A9 and the M90, with the roundabout being replaced by a grade separated junction.Fact|date=November 2007
