|Route outline (key)|
Before the A77 Kilmarnock bypass was built, the A734 linked the A71/A76 junction in Hurlford with the A77 in the southern outskirts of Kilmarnock. Its route is even harder to describe since the A71 southern bypass of Kilmarnock was added.
So... the twice-rerouted A71 now follows the eastern section of the old A734 between Hurlford and the interchange on the A77 (the original A71 into Kilmarnock is now the B7073), and the western part of the old A734 is now the B7072 which connects the A735 (was the interim A71) with the B7038 (old A77). Complicated...
