A754 Carluke - Carstairs
This article is about the incarnation of the A754 that ran from Carluke to Carstairs, now part of the A721.
For a later A754 that ran south from Renfrew, now part of the A736, see A754 (Renfrewshire)

The A721 (former A754) approaching the A706

The original number of the Lanarkshire road from the A73 in Carluke to the A70 north of Carstairs was the B716. In the mid-1920s it was upgraded to A-road status as the A754 due to its importance, presumably as it bypassed Lanark. This number did not last long, however, as it was renumbered as an eastward extension of the A721 in 1935. It remains this number except in Carluke, where the High Street is now closed to through traffic.
