The northern slip road will tie into the A9 Stirling Road by means of a roundabout, which will also provide access to Glenbervie House Hotel and Glenbervie Golf Club. The southern junction will connect with A9 Stirling Road by means of a give-way T-junction. Construction of these two new slip roads will upgrade junction 2 on the M876 from a 2 -way junction to a 4-way junction. The upgraded junction will be located approximately 3.5 kilometres north east of junction 1 on the M876 and 2.2 kilometres south west of junction 8 on the M9.
