The A767 was a short A-road near Livingston.
Starting on the A899 in Uphall, the route headed south and soon crossed the A8 Uphall/Broxburn bypass (now the A89). The route continued along a dead-straight alignment before a couple of curves led to a bridge over the River Almond at Mid Calder. The route ended shortly afterwards on the A71 (now B7015) in Mid Calder. As such it was the first Class I connection between the A8 and A71 since they left Edinburgh.
Originally numbered as part of the B707, the A767 came into being in the early 1930s. It survived relatively unchanged for many years. However, the creation of the New Town of Livingston caused many of the roads in the area to be renumbered and the A767 was no exception: it is now an out-of-zone part of the B8046. The parallel A899 extension was completed in 1972, effectively replacing the A767 as the primary north-south route through the New Town. However, the A767 lingered on and is still shown on the 1976 OS Landranger sheet.
