Route outline (key)
A727 Gorbals Cross - Clarkston Toll
This article is about the original route of A727 from Gorbals Cross - Clarkston Toll.
For the modern route, part of the Glasgow Southern Orbital, see A727
.
The now-unclassified former A727 in Govanhill

The A727 was originally allocated to a route heading south out of central Glasgow.

As far as is currently known, it started on the A8 Trongate and followed the route (north to south) thus:

  • Stockwell Street (Unclassified)
  • Gorbals Cross (A8)
  • Gorbals Street (A730)
  • Pollokshaws Road (Unclassified)
  • Victoria Road (Unclassified)
  • Queen's Drive (Unclassified)
  • Langside Road (Unclassified)
  • Grange Road (Unclassified)
  • Battlefield Road (B768)
  • Holmlea Road (Unclassified)
  • Clarkston Road (B762 then B767)
  • Clarkston Toll (B762)

The road ended on the A726 (now A727) in Clarkston.

However, the 1923 MOT map suggests that Eglington Street is part of the A727 (making Pollokshaws Road the A77) and so the A727 met the A8 at the south end of Bridge Street, after that road crossed the Clyde on the Glasgow Bridge. Certainly, later maps do make it certain that Eglington Street is the A77 so it is possible that the two roads swapped over early on, probably in 1935.

The A727 was still in existence on its original route in the 1970s but has since been downgraded.
