Route outline (key)
A802 Glasgow City Centre - Parkhead

The A802 is a declassified road in central Glasgow, it covered a well-used route from the city centre out to the eastern suburbs. Following declassification along with a plethora of other city centre roads, part of it has joined Glasgow's tangled one-way system, while much of its eastern half now flanks waste ground awaiting redevelopment.

The road started as West George Street, from its junction with Buchanan Street (initially A805, later A82 and now a pedestrianised shopping street) and opposite St George's Tron. The first few hundred yards are directly outside Queen Street railway station and those, along with the northern part of Glasgow's main civic square, George Square, are now one-way eastbound only.

Duke Street, the now-unclassified former A802

There's a further half-mile as George Street, striking eastwards out of the city centre to the junction with the High Street (once A803, now A8), when the route becomes Duke Street for the remainder of the journey through the suburbs of Dennistoun and Parkhead. It's still a major thoroughfare with heavy traffic and many bus routes. Duke Street and the A802 TOTSO at Carntyne Road, swing under the Glasgow to Coatbridge railway line, and meet the A89 Shettleston Road at a T-junction, outside what is now the Forge shopping centre. However, the junction here is relatively new, following the rerouting of the A89; the A802 used to continue further east to end on the A8 Westmuir Street.

Declassification took place in the 1970s along with other wholesale changes to the central Glasgow road system with the coming of the M8 and other widespread rebuilding of the city.
