This article is about the current A752 from Thorniewood to Muirhead. For the former A752 from Kaimrig End to Moffat, see A752 (Kaimrig End - Moffat).
The A752 is a short (under ten miles long) non-primary road linking the A721 at Thorniewood to Muirhead and the A80. Originally part of the B757, the A752 came into existence in the 1960s.
Thorniewood - Muirhead
The road begins very close to, but not connected with, the M74 near Uddingston. It leaves the A721 and heads north to cross the B7001 via a staggered junction and two adjacent roundabouts. The road then enters open country and meets the A8 at a GSJ near Bargeddie.
From here it continues north, crossing the A89 dual carriageway at a roundabout and then follows the M73 to its left for a couple of miles with Lochend and Woodend Lochs on the right. It then swings right then left to cross over the motorway and railway into Gartcosh. It passes Johnston Loch to bring the the road down under the A80 and into Muirhead. The road reaches the pre-bypass line of the A80 at traffic lights; the A752 now splits and runs in both directions to join the bypass; at both ends this is via a gap in the central reservation. The bypass was built before the A752 came into being, so the road has always had a spur in Muirhead.
