Broxden Junction (or Broxden Roundabout) is one of the busier and more important road junctions in Scotland. It is located on the outskirts of Perth. The roundabout is an important hub of the Scottish road network, a major junction on the A9 north-south route, and the UK's northernmost motorway junction, being junction 12 of the M90 motorway. All of the seven cities in Scotland are signposted from its exits.
Broxden is an interchange for several local bus and long-distance coach services; it is the central point for the Megabus coach service in Scotland. There is a park and ride area here with a bus service to Perth city centre.
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, and in fact the Scottish Government has recently revealed proposals to replace the iconic roundabout with a flyover. This is controversial however, with many people[who?] wanting the Government to focus more on fully dualling the Perth-Inverness section of the A9 as soon as possible. The Scottish government have also ignored widespread public opinion by installing Average Speed Cameras on the A9 instead of making dualing and junction improvements the priority for the A9.
