Now, the MoT maps make it clear that that most of Cathcart Street (now Cathcart Road) was numbered A728. This fact, coupled with the fact that the A729 is not explicitly marked on the maps, suggests that the road was very short. Indeed, the only section of Cathcart Street that was not part of the A728 is the short section between Pollokshaws Road and Laurieston Road. It is therefore likely, although not certain, that this short road was the A729.
Owing to the short length of the road it is not known how long the number survived. Although the road is always marked on maps as having Class I status this does not mean it was the A729; many short roads were renumbered as spurs in the 1935 renumberings, so the A729 may have become part of the A727 or A728. Certainly, it is now part of the A730.
